The base of the lightsprout for 'Canada Rose' has a medium proportion of blue in the anthocyanin colouration and dense to very dense pubescence while that of 'Chieftain' has an absent or low proportion of blue in the anthocyanin colouration and medium to dense pubescence. The leaf of 'Canada Rose' has a small to medium outline with strong presence of secondary leaflets while that of 'Chieftain' has a medium to large outline with a weak to medium presence of secondary leaflets. The midrib on the upper side of the leaf for 'Canada Rose' has a high extent of anthocyanin colouration with a medium to strong intensity while that of 'Chieftain' is of a medium extent with a weak to medium intensity. The leaflet of 'Canada Rose' has a shallow depth of veins and is medium to glossy on the upper side while that of 'Chieftain' has a medium depth of veins and a dull to medium glossiness. The plants of 'Canada Rose' are shorter than those of 'Chieftain'. The plants of 'Canada Rose' have a low to medium frequency of small inflorescences while those of 'Chieftain' have a medium to high frequency of medium to large inflorescences. The anthocyanin colouration on the inner side of the corolla for 'Canada Rose' is a very high extent of medium to strong intensity while that of 'Chieftain' is a high extent of weak to medium intensity.

Origin & Breeding History: 'Canada Rose' (experimental designation CO00277-2R) originated from a cross between the varieties 'Colorado Rose', as the female parent, and CO94065-2R, as the male parent, conducted at the Colorado State University San Luis Valley Research Center, in Center, Colorado, USA in 2000. In 2001, the true potato seed resulting from the cross was sown in a greenhouse and the resulting seedling tubers field planted in Center, Colorado. One of the progeny, designated as 'CO00277-2R', was identified in 2002. Selection criteria was based on negative mass selection for agronomic characteristics and disease resistance.
Tests & Trials: The comparative trial for 'Canada Rose' 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.
