Mountain Gem Russet

Mountain Gem Russet


The Mountain Gem Russet, known as A03158-2TE prior to release, is a medium- to late-maturing variety having both high early- and full-season yields.  


The Mountain Gem’s oblong-long, medium russeted tubers have higher protein content than standard potato varieties. 


The Mountain Gem’s high U.S. No. 1 yields, coupled with excellent culinary and nutritional qualities, make it an excellent candidate for fresh-market production. It also maintains acceptable reducing sugar concentrations and fry quality from storage and does well with early processing. Excellent culinary usage.
