Rooster is a red-skinned cultivar of potato, duller in colour than the Désirée, with floury yellow flesh. It was originally bred at the Teagasc Oak Park Research Centre in Carlow, Ireland.[4]

It has become Ireland's number one variety of potato; in 2002, it accounted for 33% of Irish potato production.[5]

In the UK, it is currently grown and packed by Albert Bartlett & Sons Ltd [4], a vegetable packing company. They own exclusive rights to the potato in the UK and supply it packed to the UK's major supermarkets.

The distributor recommends that the Rooster is extremely versatile, and can be used for chipping, mashing, boiling, baking, and roasting.
