The Instacart guide to Yukon Gold potato products


About Yukon Gold potatoes

Potatoes are native to Peru, and Native Americans domesticated them and spread them through North and South America. Yukon Gold potatoes are relatively new. Scientists first developed them in the 1960s, and they're a cross between a North American white potato and a wild South American yellow potato. They debuted commercially in 1980. Yukon Gold potatoes have smooth skin with light pink eyes and yellow or gold flesh. In addition to seeds, potatoes can reproduce by producing sprouts from the eyes.

The leaves of Yukon Gold potatoes are olive green, and the flowers are violet, lavender, or light purple with bright yellow or yellowish-green centers. The sprouts are reddish-purple. Potatoes are closely related to tomatoes, and they're both in the same taxonomic genus as nightshades: Solanum. The roots of potato plants are staples for people worldwide, but the leaves, flowers, and fruits aren't edible. Potato fruits look like green or dull purple cherry tomatoes.
