Abstract

Waneta is a white-skinned, white-fleshed potato variety notable for excellent chip color from cold storage, good yield, long tuber dormancy, and resistance to both common scab and race Ro1 of the golden cyst nematode (Globodera rostochiensis). It was selected from a cross made at Cornell University in 1998 between Marcy and NY115. The tubers are round to oblong with shallow eyes and relatively smooth skin. Chip color out of cold storage is lighter than ‘Snowden’. Marketable yield averaged 91% of Snowden across 88 trials in New York, Pennsylvania and Maine, while specific gravity averaged 0.010 less than Snowden. Waneta was released by the New York Agricultural Experiment Station in 2011.
