Pick the right potato
A guide to potato variety selection in Western Australia
You just can’t beat a classic roast! To make your meal a winner we generally recommend going with Carisma, Spudlite (Maranca) Rodeo, Royal Blue or Mozart. We also recommend a Kiplfer or Prince of Orange for a really delicious, gourmet option! Carisma (otherwise known as SpudLite) is also a great roaster.
Mash should be creamy and smooth. We suggest choosing a yellow flesh potato to get the best results, such as Royal Blue, Spudlite (Maranca), Prince of Orange or Cashmere Gold.
Boiling up some spuds for a classic potato salad? Look for something that will retain firmness and not break down after cooking. We suggest going with the varieties such as White Star, baby Nadine or Sifra. Cashmere Gold is also a great option in this category.
Whether you air fry or deep fry, you can get more crunch with these options – Carisma, Spudlite (Maranca), Neptune, and Sifra.
Tip: rest your chopped up spuds in salted water for an hour or two, drain and pat dry prior to cooking to get an even better result!
