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

Colorado Potato: "Red McClure is an early, medium-maturing, fresh market red potato. It is considered excellent for baking and boiling and ranks high in taste tests. This cultivar is slow emerging with a large upright vine and lavender flower. Red McClure has a determinate growth habit and a moderate to shallow, concentrated root system. Tubers are white fleshed, round to oval and smooth with a deep red skin color; eyes are medium depth and well distributed; low specific gravity (1.077). "
