Origin & Breeding History: 'AAC Intrepid Russet' (experimental designations AR2013-11, F08028 and 15377-13) originated from a cross made between the variety 'Frontier Russet' and experimental line F87070 conducted at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's Fredericton Research and Development Centre, in Fredericton, New Brunswick, in 2005. In 2006, the true potato seed resulting from the cross was sown in a greenhouse at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's Fredericton Research and Development Centre and the resulting seedling tubers planted at the Benton Ridge Research Substation of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada near Woodstock, New Brunswick, in 2007. A clone designated as 15377-13 was selected in 2007 from a single hill trial based on vine maturity, tuber appearance, shape and size.

Tests & Trials: The comparative trial for 'AAC Intrepid Russet' was conducted during the 2019 growing season at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's Fredericton Research and Development Centre, in Fredericton, New Brunswick. The trial consisted of 2 replicates per variety arranged in a RCB design. Each replicate consisted of 40 plants in a 12 metre length row. The rows were spaced 90 centimetres apart and the plants were spaced 25 centimetres apart within the row. Measurements were taken from 10 plants, or 10 parts of plants, of each variety. The mean differences were significant at the 5% probability level based on a paired Student's t-test.
