The discovery of a gold deposit in Coloma, CA, brought 300,000 people to California from 1848 to 1855. We don’t expect quite that many people to rush for this potato, but it deserves our enthusiasm for its good flavor and reliably high yields.
Russets can be fussy in our humid climate, but Gold Rush performs even in wet years or poor soils. Plant at wide spacing to allow tubers to grow to their full potential.
1992 North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station release. Uniform, smooth and resistant to hollow heart. Good resistance to scab. Susceptible to blights and fusarium. ②
