Neutral curzio On Dec 23, 2008, curzio from Kenosha, WI wrote:

Large size, oblong, russeted tubers with white flesh. Released in 1914 as a sport of Burbank (which was released in 1876 as a seedling of Early Rose - a seedling of Garnet Chili 1853). The standard potato for French Fries. Google Kenosha Potato Project for more recipes with specific cultivar matches.
