Summary: The lightsprout of 'Crisps4all' is small to medium sized with a medium number to many root tips whereas the lightsprout of 'Atlantic' is medium in size with few root tips. The leaves of 'Crisps4all' have an intermediate openness whereas these are intermediate to open in 'Atlantic'. The waviness of the margin of the leaflet in 'Crisps4all' is weak whereas it is absent or very weak in 'Atlantic'. The veins on the leaflet of 'Crisps4all' have a medium depth whereas 'Atlantic' leaftlets have deep veins. The extent of the anthocyanin colouration on the inner side of the corolla is absent or very low and the intensity is absent or very weak for 'Crisps4all' whereas the extent of the anthocyanin colouration is high and the intensity is medium on the inner side of the corolla for 'Atlantic'. The plants of 'Crisps4all' are late maturing whereas those of 'Atlantic' mature mid-season. The tubers of 'Crisps4all' have a yellow skin and light yellow flesh whereas the skin is light beige and the flesh is cream in colour for the 'Atlantic' tubers.

Origin & Breeding History: The origin of 'Crisps4all' is the result of the cross made in 1993 between 'RZ-85-238' as the female parent and 'RZ-87-44' as the male parent at the HZPC Research & Development Centre in Metslawier, The Netherlands. Selection criteria included internal and external quality, yield and resistances against different diseases and pests.

Tests & Trials: Tests and trials for 'Crisps4All' were conducted during the 2012 growing season in Drummond, New Brunswick. Each plot per variety 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.
