At A Glance

Each year hundreds of crosses are made between different kinds of potatoes. This produces true potato seed, which is similar to but smaller than a tomato seed. When these seeds are planted in the greenhouse, they grow into potato plants that produce small tubers. These potatoes are all genetically different. That is, they may differ in shape, color, cooking qualities, and other important characteristics from their parents.

Chippers specifically, are a type of potato used to make potato chips, usually with white skin, white flesh and round shape.
