Excerpt from Fluke's Catalogue of Seed Potatoes and Farm Seeds for 1895
This new and valuable variety was produced from a seed ball of the old Nes bannock and in all probability a cross with the Early Vermont. While the tu bers have the good qualities of either parent in cooking fine and mealy, and the best of keeping qualities; keeping from September to July, and cooking well. The stalks are quite large and vigorous, resisting blight and all kinds of bugs. The large roots spread out and go deep, resisting drouth and making a good crop with certainty. In a dry season stalks stand up well and gather the water of dews and light rains and lead it down the stalks to the roots, thus making crop ping doubly sure.
Shape, runs from oblong to long eyes shallow and few, color rose tinged white, season medium late, ripening with the Rural No. 2.
