Highland Russet (A9045-7)


Highland Russet is a mid to late season variety notable for its high yield of uniform, oblong-long, lightly russetted 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.
