‘Ivory Crisp’ – PVP certificate number 200200157
‘Ivory Crisp’ is an early chipping potato variety with a high specific gravity and medium to high yield. It has good cold chipping potential and long-term storage capability. With spreading vines that mature in mid-season, it produces numerous white flowers and netted round tubers with white skin with eyes that are intermediate in number and not well distributed. Tuber set is medium as is the tuber size.
‘Ivory Crisp’ has similar yields to ‘Atlantic’ in Idaho and produced tubers with similar specific gravity and slightly lower tuber solids than ‘Atlantic’. It produced better chip color both out of 40°F and 50°F storage It is less susceptible to hollow heart than ‘Atlantic’ with other internal and external quality characteristics fairly similar.
‘Ivory Crisp’ is generally like ‘Atlantic’ with respect to disease resistance, except that Atlantic is immune to PVX, while ‘Ivory Crisp’ is susceptible. ‘Atlantic’ is also somewhat more resistant to PVY infection.
