Red Emmalie is an early maincrop variety with red skin and red flesh. Tubers have some resistance to bruising and splitting. Trials have found good resistance to common scab, dry rots (F. coeruleum and F. sulphureum), blackleg and potato leafroll virus.. This variety has low resistance to late blight on foliage. Tests for resistance to potato cyst nematode demonstrated susceptibility to both Globodera rostochiensis Ro1 and Globodera pallida Pa 2/3, 1.
