Experimental design of the field experiments and data evaluation. Breeders are listed with their corresponding abbreviation. They cultivated and evaluated the common set of 85 potato varieties in two consecutive years (2007/2008) for bruising susceptibility (BI), specific gravity (SG), tuber shape (TS), tuber yield (TY), starch corrected bruising (SCB) and plant maturity (PM). In addition each breeder evaluated 20 own breeding clones, selected based on a specific gravity below 20 percent, a balanced tuber shape, no extreme maturity phenotype, not being closely related, and one half each having a high or a low bruising phenotype.
