The MSW 342-2r clone has been trialed throughout the North America and at present, seed is being increased for commercial use. It has a relatively early maturity and the skin appearence from the field and from storage is good enough to give some consideration to as it does not have skin blotching like other reds and it does achieve good skin set before harvest. Looks like it will be a contender in North America’s red potato market.

Norland RP is a clonal selection from Dark Red Norland and has consistently produced better marketable yields and skin color than other Norland strains, with less skin color blotching.  Since chosen in house, the Norland has an RP indicator that is specific to Real Potatoes.  The clone tends to set 2-3 more tubers per plant and has a slightly smaller tuber profile than other Norland strains but consistently does better in comparison trials and field grown evaluations.
