Oval to long tuber shape, eyes are shallow and well distributed. Skin is smooth and very bright white even after storage and shipping. The flesh is white to cream color, similar to White Rose, but has less discoloration after cooking. The Avalanche is firmer and requires longer cooking time. Breed by Irish Potato Breeders, Ltd., with parentage DHS 40-1034-9 x Maris Piper. The plant itself is much larger and more stress resistant vine than White Rose, it also has a higher yield. More tubers per plant, resulting in more marketable sized tubers. Some tolerance to late blight. Medium maturity, with skin color more attractive after storage and handling. A ten inch spacing may optimize yield and tuber size.
