Interpretive Summary: Potato breeding clone ATTX961014-1R/Y is high yielding, has red skin and yellow flesh and will be grown under the trademark name Sierra Rose. It is a new specialty variety originating from the USDA-ARS Aberdeen potato breeding program with selection, evaluation, development, and released by Texas A&M AgriLife Research in 2012.

Technical Abstract: ATTX961014-1R/Y is a high yielding, red skin, yellow flesh cultivar which was released by Texas A&M AgriLife Research in 2012. It resulted from a cross of breeding clone A90601-2RDY by the potato cultivar Mazama. ATTX961014-1R/Y is susceptible to Late Blight (Phytopthora infestans), Potato Leaf Roll Virus (PLRV), and PVY. It is moderately susceptible to common scab (Streptomyces scabies) and highly susceptible to black scurf (Rhizoctonia solani).
