A product of the cooperative USDA/ARS/University of Idaho breeding program in Aberdeen. From a 1993 cross between two varieties. It has been evaluated for several years in public and industry trials throughout the western United States.
A mid- to late-season variety notable for its high yield of oblong to long, medium-russet-color tubers, high specific gravity, excellent fry color from cold storage, and resistance to sugar ends. Brown skin color and white flesh interior.
Culinary quality is high, with larger tubers suitable for fresh market.
Good yields of larger-size 12 oz. and larger tubers versus the Russet Burbank. Its resistance to the accumulation of sugars during long-term storage also makes it suitable for processing out of storage into french fries. Makes excellent mashed potatoes and dry, fluffy baked potatoes.
Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
