Potao Association of America. "Sebago was released by the USDA and the Maine Agricultural Experiment Station in 1938. It is one of the progeny of a cross between Chippewa and Katahdin, and was tested as USDA seedling 4488. Tubers are elliptical to round, medium-thick with a smooth ivory skin." On a personal note, a neighbor planted these in 1949. Lazy bedded in a straw rick. They were a big dissapointment. A very late season potato, that could not take the summer heat in Virginia.
