MegaChip is a round white potato variety with good tuber size and specific gravity for chipping. It was developed at Rhinelander Agricultural Research Station in Wisconsin and it was result of a cross between Wischip and FYF85 and several years of selection.[1] The cross resulting in Megachip was made in 1985. It produces high quality chips that have an excellent color both from the field and after storage at 7.2 to 10 degrees C.
