Medium - large "lumpy-shaped" tubers with white skin and white flesh. Bred in Ireland and infamous for its vulnerability to blight which cause the Irish potato famine in the 1840's. W3 claims that this cultivar is terrific for traditional Irish Boxdy - it is a pre-1800 variety.
I have seed tubers to plant in the spring09 and I can't wait to try the traditional Irish recipe. FYI: W3 is short for William Woys Weaver, seed saver, potato collector and gardening/food author. Google Kenosha Potato Project to find more potato cultivars and specific recipes.
