Large, oval to oblong growing, white tuber. One of the oldest cultivated varieties, a mutant of Early Rose, released in 1876.

This was my fathers favorite. It is an excellent producer of early white potatoes. They only average fist sized potatoes but for boiling in their jackets are unbeatable. The ones that we grew had smooth skin.
