The Russet Burbank potato, botanically classified as Solanum tuberosum “Russet Burbank,” belongs to the nightshade, or Solanaceae, family. The Russet Burbank potato is the most widely grown and studied potato cultivar in North America. Also known as the Netted Gem, Idaho Russet, and the Idaho Baker, the Russet Burbank was given its name due to the texture of its skin.
Russet Burbank potatoes are an excellent source of Vitamin C, B6, magnesium, fiber, and also contain some iron.
Russet Burbank potatoes are best suited for cooked applications such as baking, mashing, roasting, and frying. They are most well known for their excellent frying capabilities and are often used for French fries, tater tots, and hash browns. They can also be sliced and roasted for Hasselback recipes, baked and served plain or with condiments, and can also be used in dishes such as au gratin, leek soup, and samosas. Russet potatoes pair well with parsnips, garlic, chives, bacon, parmesan, leeks, rosemary, salt & vinegar, onions, olive oil, and cheddar. Russet Burbank potatoes store for up to a month in a cool, dry, and dark place.
The Russet Burbank potato was not immediately popular in the United States, but with technological advancements, it eventually became one of the most well-known varieties grown. The introduction of irrigation in Idaho created large Russet tubers that were marketable for use as baking potatoes. The Russet Burbank potato also rose to fame as the potato used to make McDonald’s French fries. Today, Russet Burbank potatoes account for 70% of the potato market in North America.
The original Russet Burbank potato was discovered in the 1870s by farmer Luther Burbank in Massachusetts. It developed from a seedling of an open-pollinated cultivar "Early Rose" and was initially called Burbank's Seedling. Burbank discovered that one seedling produced two to three times more tubers of a larger size than any other potato variety he had ever grown. In the late 1800s, he marketed the seedling to Western states, under the name Burbank. Today the Russet Burbank potato is the dominant cultivar grown in the USA, especially in the Pacific Northwest.
