Wallowa Russet (A087277-6) produces much higher yields of U.S. No. 1’s than Russet Burbank. Wallowa Russet tubers have higher specific gravity and better fry color from both 40° and 45°F storage than Burbank. This variety is suitable for processing but may lack the shape uniformity and appearance necessary for fresh market approval.  

Wallowa Russet strengths include medium to high yields, excellent processing quality, few internal and external defects, adaptable to a wide range of soil and climatic conditions.  Its weaknesses are occasional sugar end problems and shape uniformity can be erratic.
