Oregon State University Releases Two New Potato Varieties

March 2, 2011: 06:47 AM EST
Oregon State University has released two new potato varieties — red fingerling AmaRosa and the light-brown Sage Russet. AmaRosa retains its color even when baked, fried, or microwaved, is antioxidant-rich, resists both scab and tuber late blight, and is expected to be popular with the specialty market. Sage Russet's flat, long shape makes it ideal for fries, hash browns, and chips. Oregon accounts for almost 25 percent of all exports of French fries from the United States. The AmaRosa breeding process started in 2000; the Sage Russet was started with a cross in 1996.
