Variety Description

Varieties used for comparison: 'Russet Burbank' and 'Shepody'

Summary: 'CV95002-1' has a more upright growth habit than 'Russet Burbank' and 'Shepody'. The plant of 'CV95002-1' is shorter and matures earlier than both reference varieties. The degree of swelling of the nodes of 'CV95002-1' is greater than the reference varieties. 'CV95002-1' has a darker green leaf colour than the reference varieties. 'CV95002-1' has smaller lateral leaflets than the reference varieties. The lateral leaflet of 'CV95002-1' has a medium ovate shape with a cuspidate tip and an obtuse base while it is elliptical in shape with an acuminate tip and obtuse base for 'Russet Burbank' and for 'Shepody' it is medium ovate with cuspidate tip and truncate base. The tuber of 'CV95002-1' is light beige with a smooth to netted texture while it is reddish brown with a russetted texture in 'Russet Burbank'. 'CV95002-1' has a larger light sprout than the reference varieties. The light sprout of 'CV95002-1' is spherical while it is ovoid in the reference varieties. The base of the light sprout of 'CV95002-1' has stronger anthocyanin colouration and weaker pubescence than the reference varieties. 'CV95002-1' light sprout tip has weak anthocyanin colouration and sparse pubescence while in 'Russet Burbank' it has lacks anthocyanin colouration and has dense pubescence and in 'Shepody' it lacks anthocyanin colouration and has medium pubescence.

Origin & Breeding History: 'CV95002-1' is the result of the cross A81386-1 x AC84437-2 that was made in 1996 at the San Luis Valley Research Centre, Colorado State University. A81386-1 = A74341-4 x Ranger Russet and AC84437-2 = ATD75-2 x A7961-1. It was assigned to the AAFC-Lethbridge, Vauxhall Research Substation where the first 4 years (1997-2000) of selection were carried out. Subsequent evaluation occurred in the Western Canadian Regional Potato Trials in 2001-2003, multi-harvest and long term storage trials in 2002-2003 at the Vauxhall Research Station. Selection criteria included tuber shape, tuber size, vine maturity, yield, incidence of tuber defects, fry colour and dry matter content (specific gravity).

Tests & Trials: Tests and trials occurred during the summer of 2007 in Vauxhall, Alberta. Plots consisted of a row 7.6 metres long with plants spaced 30 cm apart within the row. Rows were spaced 91 cm apart. There were 3 replicates arranged in an Randomized Complete Block design.
