Medium, flat, oblong white tubers. R. Plaisted and Peterson released the Bake-King variety, a cross of Merrimack and Green Mountain, released in NY 1967. This variety is the parent of the variety Shepody. Develops larger tubers quite early - I "stole" a 3" x 3" sized tuber in mid July. More information can be found by googling Kenosha Potato Project.
