Summary: The lightsprout of 'Palisade Russet' is ovoid in shape with a medium number to many root tips whereas it is spherical with few root tips for 'Russet Burbank'. The lightsprout tip of 'Palisade Russet' is large in relation to the base with an intermediate habit whereas it is medium sized in relation to the base with a closed habit in 'Russet Burbank'. 'Palisade Russet' has an upright growth habit whereas it semi-upright for 'Russet Burbank'. The extent of anthocyanin colouration on the stem of 'Palisade Russet' is absent whereas it is medium along the entire stem for 'Russet Burbank'. 'Palisade Russet' has a glabrous leaflet blade at the apical rosette whereas it is pubescent for 'Russet Burbank'. On the upper side of the leaf midrib and flower bud, the extent of anthocyanin colouration is absent or very low for 'Palisade Russet' whereas the extent is medium to high for 'Russet Burbank'. 'Palisade Russet' has a shorter plant height than 'Russet Burbank'. The frequency of flowers per plant is high for 'Palisade Russet' whereas it is low for 'Russet Burbank'. 'Palisade Russet' has medium sized inflorescences whereas those of 'Russet Burbank' are small. The extent of anthocyanin colouration on peduncle is absent or very low for 'Palisade Russet' whereas it is medium for 'Russet Burbank'. The plants of 'Palisade Russet' mature mid to late season while those of 'Russet Burbank' mature late to very late in the season. The tubers of 'Palisade Russet' have a long-oval shape with eyes at a shallow depth whereas the tubers of 'Russet Burbank' are long with medium depth eyes.

Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'Palisade Russet' originated from a cross between 'AWN86514-2' as the female parent and 'A86102-6' as the male parent, made at the University of Idaho's Aberdeen Research and Extension Center in 2000. The variety was selected as a seedling in the field in 2001 at Aberdeen, Idaho. Selection criteria were negative mass selection for agronomic characteristics and resistance to various diseases.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Pallisade Russet' were conducted during the 2013 growing season in Drummond, New Brunswick. Each variety plot consisted of 60 plants grown in a single row with a row length of 18.5 metres and a row spacing of 0.9 metres between rows. Plants were spaced 0.30 metres apart. The measured characteristics were based on 10 measurements per variety. Mean differences were significant at the 5% probability level based on a paired StudentÂ’s t-test.
