Default What potato variety is a "late maturing" vs early

Who knows the varieties of late maturing potatoes?

When I had our soil samples tested at a local lab this week, I got to choose what the crop was that would be growing this year. They had a long list of produce. one was early potatoes and one was for late maturing potatoes.

I'm assuming that each one would have its own unique need and timing for what nutrients will be recommended. like the late ones maybe need to have an extra dose of fertilizer half way through growing time???

Anyway, since I checked the box for late maturing potatoes, what are they? Russets was the only one that popped into my head.

Plus the garden is located in SW Ohio, if our length of season makes a difference.

You can go to any site where potatoes are sold and they'll have that information. Here's a link to Fedco's:
