Agria Potatoes

The semi-smooth skinned potato has only a few, shallow eyes. Agria’s firm and floury flesh is a deep yellow colour. The flesh has a smooth consistency, despite being starchy, and does not develop black marks after exposure. Agria potatoes are said to have an “old fashioned potato” flavour and are considered to be one of the more flavourful potatoes available in the market.

Agria potatoes are very popular throughout Europe and the United Kingdom, and are known for their superior taste and the fact that they don’t discolor when raw or cooked.

Agria potatoes are well-suited to baking, frying and boiling. They are considered “floury” by the potato industry and are often marketed as a good French fry potato. Agria potatoes can be used in place of any other potato variety, whether boiled, roasted or fried. This variety is ideal for mashing and baking as well, as they do not absorb much excess water. Dice Agria potatoes and toss with diced peppers and onions for breakfast potatoes or julienne for thin fries. Agria potatoes will store in a cool, dark environment for up to a month. Refrigerating the potatoes will change its flavour.
