Red potatoes Meaning in English

The Red Pontiac, also known as Dakota Chief, is a red-skinned early main crop potato variety originally bred in the U.S., and is sold in the Southeastern United States, Canada, Australia, Algeria, the Philippines, Venezuela and Uruguay. It arose as a color mutant of the original Pontiac variety in Florida. The plants are large and spreading with angled stems and large light purple flowers.

The red Tubers have medium to deep eyes, white flesh and low specific gravity. The variety is widely adapted with high yield potential.
