Pike is a variety of potato released by the Cornell and Pennsylvania Experimental Stations in March 1996. This clone originated from a cross made in 1981 between Allegany and Atlantic potato varieties. It is resistant to infection by golden nematode, common scab, golden necrosis, and foliage infection by Phytophthora. Pike is intended to be used agriculturally, specifically for use in potato chips.
