Abstract

Reba has a bright clear skin, attractive shape and cooking qualities that make it suitable for tablestock. The chip color from 7°storage has been equal to that of Monona. The specific gravity of Reba is .013 less than Atlantic and .007 greater than Monona. In upstate New York and Pennsylvania trials, Reba has produced a marketable yield about 9% greater than Atlantic. On Long Island and New Jersey, Reba has yielded about 14% greater than Superior. Reba is resistant to race Ro1 of the golden nematode, as resistant to scab as Monona, and moderately resistant to Verticillium wilt.
