The work presents the characteristics of eight new varieties of potato of russian selection of early and early ripening groups: Kladez, Korchma, Kralek, Kupets, Patriot, Prizier, Tretyakovka, Elixir. Productivity of new varieties is 1.5–14.7 t/ha higher than standards. New varieties characterize high starch content, vitamin C content, excellent taste, low nitrate content and medium – reducing sugars. Special attention should be paid to the varieties Kralek (pink pulp) and Elixir (red pulp). These varieties are intended for dietary nutrition and contains anthocyanins (antioxidants). Also they differ excellent taste.

Keywords: potatoes, varieties, taste, productivity, biochemical indicators.
