Abstract

Eva is a new potato variety being released by the New York and Pennsylvania Experiment Stations. Eva is notable for its bright clear skin and attractive round to oval shape. It produces a chip color comparable to Monona from 9 C storage and has specific gravity. 014 less than that of Atlantic. It has exceptionally long tuber dormancy and has extreme resistance to PVX, PVY, and race RO1 of the golden nematode. Scab resistance is like that of Monona. It is expected that Eva will find primary acceptance as a tablestock variety.
