Potatoes have three different categories that species of potatoes can fall into: “Waxy“, “Floury” and “All Rounders“.

Waxy potatoes have higher moisture content and less starch, which helps them hold their shape better and are therefore more suited to boiling or using in a slow-cooker. Below are our recommended potato varieties to use for boiled potatoes.

  • Bellitá
  • Bison
  • Carisma
  • Coliban
  • Desiree
  • Dutch Cream
  • Harmony
  • Kennebec
  • Kestrel
  • Kipfler
  • Lady Christl
  • Nadine
  • Nicola
  • Pink Eye
  • Pink Fir Apple
  • Pontiac
  • Purple Congo
  • Red Rascal
  • Ruby Lou
