Neutral Farmerdill On Mar 9, 2006, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

Tubers are round to oval, large, uniform; smooth to medium rough yellow skin; shallow eyes, few per tuber, evenly distributed; eyebrows slightly prominent; light yellow flesh.... High yielding variety; high number of tubers per plant; uniform in grading; good resistance to external and internal bruising; good storability; medium specific gravity. Primary uses: baking and boiling.
