Potato, Yukon Gold (10 Micro Tubers)
The Yukon Gold is a beloved classic! This yellow-fleshed, mid-season maturing variety has thin, smooth skin and a mouthwatering waxy/creamy texture. With its impeccable storage ability, long shelf life, and amazing flavor, Yukon Gold is a favorite for all-purpose cooking. Garnet "Gary" Johnston spent decades developing this scrumptious variety at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. It is said that one of the graduate students in Johnston's lab was from Peru and introduced him to a highly sought-after yellow potato from the Peruvian Andes. Johnston aimed to select for a larger commercial type with a similar taste and texture. Yukon Gold is an especially good choice for making Peruvian-inspired potato dishes, as it is similar to papa amarilla of the Andes.
