The skin of a red potato can vary from a dark red hue to a very light pink hue and the flesh from a creamy white to a golden yellow. One notable benefit often called out is the higher antioxidant level provided by the red skin versus russet or white potatoes. The underlying cause of the skin color variations is directly tied to where the potatoes are grown and the soil type. Volcanic soils such as those found in the Pacific Northwest produce very dark reds, while sandy loam such as what is found in Florida produce a lighter pink potato. Most reds are round and typed as waxy, which means more moisture and less starch. This feature makes red potatoes ideal for potato salad dishes, steamed, boiled, or in casseroles and crock pot meals. They’ll remain firm during the cooking process. Their flavor is sweet and robust with a creamy, slightly moist mouth feel.
