Sierra Gold potatoes are a unique pedigree of a Russet and a Yukon Gold, giving them the distinct hybrid characteristics of both varieties: hearty, earthy skin, deep yellow flesh with a creamy texture and a toasted, buttery flavor. Younger Sierra Gold potatoes are round and as they mature they become more oval in shape.
Sierra Gold potatoes are available from late summer through winter.
The Sierra Gold is considered a russet cultivar, though it took more than a russet to give it its trademark characteristics. It is highly regarded for its culinary qualities and for its resistance to disease and after cooking-discoloration.
The Sierra Gold potato is considered a versatile all-purpose potato. It can be baked, fried, boiled and even microwaved.
The Sierra Gold's first inception was created by the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station under the name, TX1523-1Ru/Y. It was released for commercial production in 2003, making it a rather new potato variety in the marketplace, thus it is relatively obscure. It is considered to be the very first Russet type cultivar to be introduced to the United States.
