Red La Soda is a red, main season potato cultivar.
It is a deep red mutant of the potato variety 'La Soda'.
Original was developed by the Louisiana potato breeding program in 1948, a cross between 'Triumph' and 'Katahdin'.
The mutant form was first observed in 1949 but was not released until 1953 by the USDA.
A russet potato is a type of potato that is large, with dark brown skin and few eyes.
The flesh is white, dry, and mealy, and it is suitable for baking, mashing, and french fries.
Russet potatoes are also known as Idaho potatoes.
The 'Adirondack Blue' is a potato variety with blue flesh and skin.
Released by Cornell University (Robert Plaisted, Ken Paddock, & Walter De Jong) in 2003.
The 'Adirondack' varieties are unusual because both the skin and the flesh are colored and have high levels of anthocyanins.
This variety is good for boiling, baking, and mashing, and can be used for brightly colored salads.
Unlike many blue potatoes, it does not turn grey after boiling.
Bred from N40-1 ('Chieftain' x 'Black Russian') x NY96 and is not under plant variety protection.
Large and spreading foliage.
The stems and leaves are green with a bluish tint. The flowers are white.
Tuber set is moderate and the tubers are round to oblong in shape and slightly flattened, with intermediate to shallow eyes.
The skin and flesh are purple and the skin may be slightly netted. Tuber dormancy is short.
The tubers can be used for chips, but cannot be chipped from cold storage.
