MaineChip Potatoes are round, with buff skin with some netting, and white flesh.
Good for French Fries (aka chips in the UK), even after storage.
Also marketed for fresh consumer use as an all-purpose potato.
They are popular in Maine, and in New Brunswick, Canada.
MaineChip Potatoes were developed by an A.F. Reeves for the University of Maine potato breeding programme at Presque Isle, Maine in 1975 from a cross between two potatoes referred to as “AF186-2” and “AF84-4.”
During development, the potato was referred to as “AF875-16.”
