The parentage of the Rudolph variety is actually a little uncertain as the British breeder did not properly document all of the relevant parentage data.

It is assumed that Rudolph is a cross between Chieftain and Stirling, but this is far from certain. In any case, the breed does display some resistance to late blight.
