Primarily the Norchip and Cascade varieties, they are round or oblong in shape with thin textured skin. White potatoes are an all purpose potato, good choice for french-frying, baking, steaming and boiling.
White potatoes are available July to November.
Care and Storage
Mature potatoes should be stored in a cool, dry, dark, well-ventilated place. Storing them in the refrigerator will cause the starch within potatoes to convert to sugar and the potato will darken when cooked. Too warm a temperature will cause potatoes to shrivel and sprout. Too much light will cause potatoes to turn green and develop a bitter taste.
