Origin & Breeding History: 'Bayside Red' (experimental designations 'AR2008-01', F03004 and 13672-03) originated from the cross of 'Coastal Russet' and 'F92028' made in 2000 in Fredericton, New-Brunswick. Selection criteria were clonal selection for adaptation, tuber type and French fry potential.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Bayside Red' were conducted at the Potato Research Centre, Fredericton, New-Brunswick, in 2010. There were two replicates of 30 plants with a plant spacing of 25cm.
