Abstract: Eleven Russet Burbank clones were compared in field trials during 1998, 1999 and 2000 at the Potato Research Centre and at Hartland in 2000. No differences were observed in total or marketable yields. However, differences in tuber size distribution, tuber number per stem and total stem numbers per seed piece were observed among the clones.
