Summary

The Katahdin potato is resistant to mild mosaic but not to spindle tuber or leaf roll. It is a high-yielding variety, producing tubers of excellent shape, with shallow eyes and desirable cooking quality. The vines mature late but the tubers apparently set rather early. Observations have indicated that it is probably well adapted to muck and peat soils. It is not believed to be well suited to regions that have summer droughts. If favorable results are obtained in 1931 a more extensive introduction will be made in 1932, provided it seems advisable to the agricultural experiment stations in the states in which the tests have been made.
