Red Potato Recipes


Tubers are round to oblong. Moderately smooth with netted buff skin and medium deep eyes, evenly distributed with white flesh. High yielding variety with tubers bulking rapidly. It is susceptible to pressure bruising, but has good storability with high specific gravity. Skin is splotched with red. (1)

  • Origin & Breeding:bred from the cross (Wauseon x B6563-2) at the Campbell Institute for Research and Technology, Camden, New Jersey (USA) in 1971. Released in1984.
  • Maturity:medium early


High yielding variety; tubers bulk rapidly; susceptible to pressure bruising; good storability; high specific gravity.

REMARK: spacing should be at 25cmbetween plants for table and closer for chipping and seed production.

  • Utilization:good for cooking and chipping from field and warm storage; does not recondition well.
  • Chief Markets:early fresh market, chipping.


  • Plants:medium large, spreading; stems strongly pigmented; wings short to medium; nodes slightly swollen.

  • Tubers:round to oblong, moderately smooth; netted buff skin; medium deep eyes, evenly distributed; white flesh.
  • Sprouts:ovoid, purple, slightly pubescent.


Resistant:golden nematode (Globodera rostochiensispathotype Ro1),PVX, net necrosis.
Moderately resistant:common scab.
