Technical Abstract: Dakota Rose is a medium maturing, white-fleshed, red skinned cultivar that retains the bright red color in storage. Tubers have very smooth skin with an oblong shape. Yields are equivalent, or superior, to Red Norland, however are lower than Red Pontiac, a late maturing cultivar. Dakota Rose produces a high percentage of U.S. No. 1 tubers and few oversized tubers. Sensory evaluation scores for baked, boiled and microwaved potatoes are similar to Red Norland and Red Pontiac, standard red tablestock cultivars. The specific gravity is low, averaging about 1.068 across dryland and irrigated sites. Dakota Rose was released by the North Dakota Experiment Station on November 17, 2000.
