Markies is a chipping and crisping variety with a yellow skin and light yellow flesh colour. Tubers are big, oval long with shallow eyes, of uniform size, and deliver high yields. With a floury cooking texture and excellent dry matter content, Markies fries well and is known to absorb less oil when fried for either chips or crisps.

Markies has a very low sugar content and potentially very low acrylamide levels after processing. It has a slight susceptibility to Spraing so avoid growing on pure sandy or peat soils. Markies is suitable for cultivation worldwide.
