Summary: The lightsprout base for 'Goldmarie' has a medium intensity of anthocyanin colouration whereas that of 'Perline' has a strong intensity of anthocyanin colouration. The lightsprout tip for 'Goldmarie' has a closed habit, absent or very weak intensity of anthocyanin colouration and absent or very sparse to sparse pubescence whereas that of 'Perline' has an open habit, a medium intensity of anthocyanin colouration and medium to dense pubescence. The leaf of 'Goldmarie' is light to medium green and has a very weak to weak presence of secondary leaflets whereas the leaf of 'Perline' is medium to dark green with a strong presence of secondary leaflets. The frequency of coalescence of the terminal and lateral leaflets for 'Goldmarie' is low whereas it is absent or very low for 'Perline'. The plants of 'Goldmarie' are taller than those of 'Perline'. The frequency of inflorescence is medium to high for 'Goldmarie' whereas it is low for 'Perline'. The plants of 'Goldmarie' mature late to very late in the season while those of 'Perline' mature mid-season. The tuber of 'Goldmarie' has a long-oval shape, has very shallow to shallow eyes and dark yellow flesh whereas the tuber of 'Perline' is round with eyes of medium depth and medium yellow flesh.

Origin & Breeding History: 'Goldmarie' (experimental designation 708 207-04) originated from the cross between 'Andante' as the female parent, and 'Agila' as the male parent, conducted at the NORIKA, Nordring -Kartoffelzucht- und Vermehrungs- GmbH breeding station in Sanitz, Germany in 2003. In 2004, the true potato seed resulting from the cross was sown in a greenhouse and the resulting seedling tubers field planted in Gross Luesewitz, Germany. One progeny, designated as 787 206-04, was identified in 2005. Selection criteria was based on negative mass selection for agronomic characteristics and disease resistance.
Tests & Trials: The comparative trial for 'Goldmarie' was conducted by Global Agri Services Inc. during the 2018 growing season in Drummond, New Brunswick. The trial consisted of a single, 21 metre long row containing 70 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, or 10 parts of plants, of each variety. The mean difference was significant at the 5% probability level based on a paired Student's t-test.
