I planted 32' of row of these last summer. I got just over 40# of potatoes so they produced about average for me compared to the other potatoes I planted. They taste great, produced pretty good sized potatoes. They don't store all that well. I harvested mine about 6 weeks ago and they're starting to get sort of soft and I've found a few I needed to throw out. The other varieties I've planted are still storing just fine. I don't really have any complaints about these but probably won't plant them again next year in favor of other varieties that store longer.

Goldrush was first selected in 1981 from a cross between a North Dakota advanced selection ND450-3Russ x Lemhi Russet. The cultivars Pioneer and Norgold Russet are in its ancestry. It was tested as ND1538-1Russ and was released by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station on March 1, 1992. A long white fleshed muti-purpose potato resistant to hollow heart and scab.
