Designed for the Potato chip industry, Information from Potato Assocaition of America. "Kanona arose from a cross made in 1975 between Peconic and a bulk collection of pollen from a group of golden nematode susceptible clones. The variety was first evaluated as T4-20, then as NY71. It was released by Cornell University in 1989.
Few tubers are produced per plant. They tend to be large and are produced on short stolons. They are spherical with medium deep eyes. Tubers have a white and slightly netted skin."
