Highland Russet (OTT case 09-022)

“Highland Russet” is a mid- to late-season potato variety notable for its high yield of uniform, oblong-long, lightly russeted tubers. The variety has moderately high specific gravity and resistances to second growth and most internal defects. Highland Russet shows good potential for the processing market, although its light skin may limit its acceptance on the fresh market.

Highland Russet is moderately resistant to common scab, powdery scab, early and late tuber blight and PVY. It is resistant to infection by PVX.

If interested in licensing this potato variety, please contact the Potato Variety Management Institute (PVMI).
