History

The Russet (meaning rough) Burbank potato was given its name due to the texture of its skin. Inside the large potato's fine, sandpaper-textured, ruddy-colored skin is a firm, low-sugar, moist and starchy flesh that becomes fluffy and light when cooked. Varieties include Russet Burbank, Russet Arcadia, Russet Norkotah and Butte.
