Neutral Farmerdill On Mar 23, 2006, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

American Journal of Potato Research: "Red Pearl is a medium-late variety with round tubers of stable dark red skin and white flesh. It is an ideal gourmet and canning variety due to its high tuber set and high proportion of tubers less than 4.76 cm diameter (up to 71% of the total yield). Red Pearl has good boiling and baking qualities."
