Are Yukon Gold Potatoes and Gold or Golden Potatoes the same thing? I'm a produce manager in a large grocery store and I have a lady customer who is arguing with me that they are not. Can you please help me?
Yukon Gold originally was one variety. It evolved over the years and so there are similar varieties out there now. Idaho grows very few of the Yukon Gold’s anymore, preferring a Yukon Gem. So, she may be right, but generally most yellow flesh varieties perform in a similar fashion for cooking. Did you check out our varieties info?
