If you love yellow potatoes, you should certainly plant this fine selection bred from Yukon Gold and released in 2006. The round-oblong tubers mature about 10-12 days later than its famous parent with the same great flavor and delicious moist yellow flesh, but Yukon Gem offers more reliable and higher yields than Yukon Gold, as well as improved resistance to PVY, common scab, blight (early and late) and black spot.
Yukon Gem tubers have golden-tan skins with shallow eyes and dense, buttery-yellow flesh. They are truly an all-purpose potato: use them in all the ways you enjoy eating tasty, nutritious potatoes. They are delicious roasted mashed boiled or baked; sensational when made into golden oven fries, great in soups, stews and chowders.
Midseason: 80-95 days
