I'm looking for this variety .. I found it was released in 1976 in Irland as a cross of Ulster Glade x A25/19 by Teagasc IPM Ltd. Now it is mainly grown in Southern Europe and Africa (and Israel) as it grows well in very dry conditions. I'm very interested to find it because I believe it will do well grown in bags (for more info on growing potato in bags google kenoshapotato.com)

Stores very well and has good blight resistance. Expect a large yield of red eyed tubers with creamy flesh ideal for roasting and baking.
