Pomerelle Russet (A02062-1TE)

Pomerelle Russet Group.jpg


Pomerelle Russet, was known as A02062-1TE prior to release. It is an early maturing fresh variety that produces moderately high early-season yields. It has very attractive, smooth oblong-long tubers with brown-russeted skin. It is resistant to internal and external defects and has a high percentage of U.S. No. 1 yield.


Relative to industry standard varieties, Pomerelle Russet has greater resistance to soft rot, corky ringspot, Potato mop-top virus (PMTV) and tuber infections from late blight.


It also has high protein and vitamin C concentrations, moderate specific gravity and good resistance to sugar ends.


With moderately long dormancy, about 30 days shorter than Russet Burbank, it maintains acceptable fry color for about 180-200 days in storage at 48oF, indicating some potential for processing out of short-term storage. However, its primary use appears to be as a high quality, early fresh variety.
