Andean Sunrise Potatoes


Andean Sunrise are a new variety of potato great for roasting and mashing and with exceptional buttery flavour. These yellow fleshed potatoes have a high carotene level. Often spruiked as an heirloom variety, Andean Sunrise or Sunside was actually selectively cross bred from a different potato family called Phureja, originally from the Andean valleys of Peru and a commercial variety by Agrico, Netherlands. I enjoyed them last season and they are available again from Jones Potatoes at farmers markets around Melbourne. Give them a go and enjoy really crispy roast potatoes that actually taste great too.
