'MegaChip' is a medium-late variety for chipping, with round-oval tubers of white tan skin and white flesh. MegaChip has consistently shown good to high yield potential. The tubers bulk early and produce a good size distribution for chipping. The specific gravity is consistently high and is close to the solid content of 'Atlantic'. MegaChip has longer dormancy than 'Snowden' and Atlantic and stores well. It produces high quality chips that have an excellent color both from the field and after storage at 7.2 to 10 C. MegaChip showed a high level of resistance to common scab at most locations in North Central Regional trials and is moderately resistant to foliar early blight, powdery scab, pink rot, dry rot and soft rot. MegaChip is also fairly resistant to shatter bruise.
