According to Michegan State University: "Liberator is a round white chip-processing variety with a medium set of bright-skinned tubers similar in appearance to Norchip. The primary strength of this variety is its strong resistance to scab (Streptomyces scabies Thaxter) combined with chip-processing quality and high specific gravity. Liberator was evaluated as seedling number MSA091-1. The name Liberator was chosen to acknowledge the resistance to scab. "
