The last several 5 lb bags of “Red" potatoes we've bought have a pastel yellow cast to them, instead of being white when peeled. Previously, the potatoes we bought were white, which looked better when mashed. What's up, are these not from Idaho?A:
Idaho grows several red varieties, and some newer varieties have a yellow flesh inside, as well as the usual white. You can find all of our Idaho® potato varieties at the following link: https://idahopotato.com/directory/varieties.
Always look for a bag that has the "Grown in Idaho" certification mark on it as this will guarantee you are purchasing genuine Idaho® potatoes.
