"You'd look good even in a potato sack". Marilyn, a new star of the fingerlings, more attractive and much easier to grow. Developed in Europe especially for salads and gourmet markets.
Tubers are Long oval, very regular, shallow eyes, yellow skin, yellow flesh. Produces heavy yields with many tubers, medium sized, very regular long oval shape with smooth clear bright skin. With somewhat closer planting distance, Marilyn can be grown for yellow creamer potatoes with size 1 1/4" - 2" in diameter.
Normal foliage, not abundant, but gives good ground cover. Vine killing should not cause problems, the crop and tubers mature normally. Harvest with care, somewhat susceptible for damage because of the longoval tubers and bright skin.
Resistant to Golden Nematodes. Normal susceptible for Leaf Blight and good resistance to Tuber Blight. Moderate resistance to common scab.
Yellow waxy-type tubers with firm texture that have wonderful flavor. A good choise for boiling, roasting or steaming and a new favorite of fine chefs.
