Andover is an early maturing chipping variety developed by Cornell University. Andover produces round tubers with a medium size profile.  Andover is suited for early field chipping and produces excellent chip colour from the field abd from early storage.  Andovers maturity is earlier than Atlantic and Dakota Pearls so is one of the earliest chippers in certain regions.
