Alpine Russet (OTT case 09-006)

“Alpine Russet” is a high yielding, medium to late maturing potato variety with oblong tubers, light russet skin and good processing quality following long-term storage. It has moderately high specific gravity, resistances to sugar ends, tuber malformations and most internal and external defects. It is notable for a tuber dormancy most similar to that of “Russet Burbank,” making it an excellent candidate for long-term storage, with processing characteristics superior to that of Russet Burbank. Alpine Russet produces oblong tubers with medium thickness and light russet skin. The eyes are shallow in depth and intermediate in number and are predominately apical. Tuber set is low, and tuber size is medium large.

Alpine Russet has moderate resistance to scab and Verticillium wilt. It has a high early yield with large percentage of US No.1 tubers. Its weaknesses include a light russet skin and susceptibility to PVY.

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