Waimea: A new ‘sub’-tropical adapted potato cultivar
- 10 Downloads
Waimea (Wy-may-ah) is white skinned with round to blocky shaped tubers. It is tolerant to late blight but susceptible to early blight and root knot nematode. In Hawaii, Waimea is adapted to high elevation growing conditions. It is much higher yielding with slightly higher specific gravity when compared to Kennebec. Waimea is comparable to Pele, another Hawaiian cultivar.
