The BrucePotato: A New HyTbrid.

Russell's monthly time- table to hand a slip (published by the " Wanjganui Chronicle) setting forth the advantages of a new comparatively frost-proof potato raised by Mi-A. Finlay, of Markrich (Fife). It is the result of seven years careful crossing and selection, the original stock being a variety known as Paterson's Victoria and the late Rose. These were selected as being in no way related, as the former was of• Scotch and the latter of American origin. ■It is claimed for this now potato that it can stand without the least injury to its haulm from 6 to 8 degreps of frost, and that it has a fine flavour and is a good cropper. There is no reason why a potato possessing all the above qualities should not be produced. It would prove itself to be a valuable introduction for early planting, &c. We trust that some of our enterprising potato growers will give it a fair trial and report the result when the time comes. >
