A very smooth, medium to late maturing round to oblong specialty cultivar with beautiful purple/white skin (similar to a pinto bean in appearance) and yellow flesh. This cultivar has excellent culinary qualities with very high levels of antioxidants. It has great disease resistance to a number of problems and is one of the first multi-colored skin cultivars to make it to the market.

CO99053-3RU:

A very smooth, medium to late maturing, oblong russet. Its uses are both fresh and processing markets. This russet has a beautiful, light russet skin and excellent culinary qualities. It is susceptible to several major diseases such as PVY and leafroll, but handles them well so that certification rejections are rarely an issue.

CO99100-1RU:

A very smooth, very early, light skinned, long russet. Its uses are both fresh and processing markets. This russet is up to two weeks earlier than a standard Russet Norkotah and tends to produce a very uniform crop of tubers in the sweet spot for marketing (8 to 16 oz). It too has excellent culinary qualities. It is susceptible to several major diseases such as PVY and leafroll, so careful in-season management is necessary.
