Yukon Gold is a large thin skinned variety of potato developed in 1960s and not released until 1980. Under optimal conditions a pound of Yukon Gold seed potato can produce up to 15 lbs of golden yellow spuds.
Yukon Gold is a very popular yellow potato. It is an early variety which is one reason for its popularity. In addition to maturity in 60 - 80 days its golden yellow flesh has a superb creamy taste complimented by a smooth buttery texture. It stores well and is somewhat more drought tolerant than standard varieties.
In the culinary realm it retains its texture and taste under baking and frying as well as boiling and deep fry methods.
