Red Potato Recipes

Sangre

Tubers are oval to oblong with smooth deep red skin. Shallow eyes which are evenly distributed. It has white flesh and produces high yields. Medium to long dormancy period. Medium specific gravity. Good storability, good retention of red skin color. Resistant to second growth and rarely exhibits hollow heart, internal discoloration or blackspot. Adapted to irrigated areas of the west. Suggested uses: boiling and baking. Reference: PAA, San Luis Hills Farm, Mountain Valley Produce. Also known as Red Sangre, or Sangre Sel. (1)

  • Origin & Breeding:bred byUSDAfrom the cross (Viking x A6356-9) in Aberdeen, Idaho, and selected by the Colorado State University. Released in 1982.
  • Maturity:mid-season

Agricultural

High yielding variety. Medium to long dormancy period. Medium specific gravity. Good storability, good retention of red skin color. Adequate warming of seed (at least 7 to 10 days) prior to planting is essential to obtain uniform emergence. Relatively close seed spacing will help optimize yield and tuber size. Slow emergence but grows rapidly. Tuberization occurs early and tubers bulk at a rapid rate early in the season.

Resistant to second growth; rarely exhibits hollow heart, internal discoloration or black spot. Adapted to irrigated areas of the west. Moderately tolerant to drought. Tubers tend to develop excessive netting under dry soil conditions resulting in a brownish and unattractive appearance.

  • Utilization:excellent for boiling and baking; ranks high in taste tests; no after cooking discoloration. High level of vitamin C.
  • Chief Market:fresh market.
