The Dakota Pearl has a smooth, white skin and a white flesh. It has medium-sized round tubers with shallow eyes.

Although originally intended for potato chip processing because it has excellent chipping qualities, the Dakota Pearl has also become a very popular fresh variety in the "round white" market.

It is an early maturing variety which produces a high number of tubers. It has a high dry matter content and its cooking type is floury. (The Dakota Pearl was developed at North Dakota State University, not by Agrico or its breeders.)
