First introduced in 2004, this high yielding variety was named for its strong resistance to late blight and many other common potato diseases. Defender offers strong yields with higher vitamin C and protein content than other varieties. Tubers make terrific thick-cut oven fries or enjoy them as steaming hot, flaky baked potatoes – the best kind of nourishing comfort food.
These strong plants produce abundant big tubers with lightly russeted skin and delicious dry, fluffy white flesh. Ideal to grate for delectable potato pancakes. A great potato for small gardens, offering substantial yields of nutritious tubers that store well for a long season of eating pleasure.
