Where do you find true Idaho Potatoes?
I know what you mean; sometimes it is confusing, especially if you are in a hurry. First of all, “Idaho potatoes” are not a variety… they are a source of origin. So only potatoes grown in Idaho can be called Idaho Potatoes. These are the authentic, genuine spuds from Idaho. They usually are russets, and mostly we grow the Russet Burbank variety, which is still favored in foodservice. However in grocery or retail stores the Russet Norkotah has come on strong in recent years because it has a slightly moister taste and a pretty even colored skin and oval shape.
The best way, is to look for the “Grown in Idaho” Seal.
Dr. Potato isn't a real doctor but a team of potato experts ready to answer all your potato questions.
Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
