Mayan Gold - Seed Potatoes

  • Mayan Gold potatoes are an early maincrop.
  • Ideally suited for processing into gourmet potato products.
  • Yellow skinned, long, oval, tubers with a deep golden flesh, a unique nutty flavour, and an extremely creamy, yet dry texture.
  • Mayan Gold has proven exceptionally popular with chefs and the restaurant trade.
  • The carotenoids responsible for the golden flesh are precursors of vitamin A - an essential nutrient normally lacking in the otherwise nutritionally complete potato.
  • Fantastic for chips and roast potatoes with a crispy texture and fluffy centres.
  • Superb flavour when cooked in its skin, and for all cooking uses except boiling, as tubers tend to disintegrate.
  • One of the first potatoes bred from the indigenous Phureja potatoes of Peru.
  • Mayan Gold are said to be the closest potato to the ones allegedly brought back from South America by Sir Walter Raleigh.  Even if this is not true - Mayan Gold is a real treasure and tastes amazing!
