'Dakota Diamond' is named for its many attributes, including beautiful appearance, excellent chip quality, particularly from late-season storage; resistance to common scab; exceptionally high-yield potential; and in honor of the NDSU potato breeding program being part of the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station for 75 years.
The 'Dakota Crisp' plant is vigorous, medium to dark green in color, and semi-erect to sprawling. The flower color is white. The pollen and berry production are low to moderate in the field.
