Perry Hill Farm is very pleased to participate once again in the NOFANY potato trial.
This year we will be trialing six varieties of potatoes.
Early Ohio--Early maturity heirloom. Large tubers with smooth, tan skin and white flesh. White flowers. Eyes are few and shallow. Good baker, with dry and flakey flesh. Has a sweet, somewhat nutty flavor. Boils well.
Magic Molly--Purple skinned, uniform very dark purple fleshed tablestock. Tubers medium to large sized, oblong in shape. Tubers retain most of purple color after boiling and are a good purple (blue) for potato salad.
Daisy Gold--Mid-season heirloom. Yellow skin, yellow flesh. Impressively large oblong tubers with shallow eyes, deep yellow flesh and smooth, moist texture. Large upright plants with white flowers. Excellent all purpose potato; baked, boiled, mashed or fried. Stores well.
Snog--Medium size, oval tubers with pinkish skin and pale yellow flesh; has a creamy texture and nutty flavor.
Bernadette--Tan skinned, deep yellow fleshed, oval shaped to long, medium to large size, very nice appearance. Boiled texture waxy to smooth, flavorful with slight nutty taste.
Red Maria--A late season, red-skinned tablestock variety. Large, round, very uniform tuber shapes. Very high yield potential. Eyes are shallow and the skin is slightly textured (light netting) with a rich dark red color. Few external or internal defects. Good boiling and cooking quality. Excellent resistance to common scab, similar to Pike. Resistant to race Ro1 of the golden nematode.
