Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'Rosemarie' originated from a cross conducted in 2003 as part of a private breeding program at the Karsten Ellenberg breeding facility in Barum, Germany. The cross was made between ('La Ratte' × 'Baltica') as the female parent and ('Highland Burgundy Red' × 'Huamantango') as the male parent. The resultant seed was planted in a greenhouse in 2004 and from these, tubers were harvested and planted in the field in Barum, Germany in 2005. The variety was selected in 2005 for its agronomic characteristics and resistance to various diseases.

Tests & Trials: The comparative trial for 'Rosemarie' was conducted during the growing season of 2014 in Drummond, New Brunswick. The trial consisted of a single row with 60 plants spaced 0.3 metres apart for each variety. The distance between rows within the trial was 0.9 metres. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety. Mean differences were significant at the 5% probability level based on a paired Student's t-test.
