Featuring a slightly bitter medium thin red skin, the light yellow flesh cooks creamy. Apparently more starchy than waxy. Probably a good choice for American Fries. Tom Wagner posted on our Facebook Group Page: I never found Red Gold to be bitter before but it does have the bitter variety Lenape in the pedigree! The yellow flesh comes from Carota, a Solanum phureja variety which constitutes 1/16 of its makeup. Crimson Red Gold crossed with its half sib Rose Gold doubles up the yellow flesh quite a bit.
Another creation of Prof. David Holm at Colorado State University. Medium size, round to oblong tubers, with red skin and DARK yellow flesh. This variety is a PVP .. we are not allowed to share tubers. (the other 2 are MASQUERADE and MIDNIGHT MOON).
Of the 3 Red Luna produced the smallest yield grown in gardeners.com bags.
It features a very thin skin. The flesh is creamy and buttery .. maybe the best tasting of the three. Seed tubers can be ordered from CV Burpee Seeds.

Destroyer, featuring a medium thin nutty skin. The skin color is a stunning purple with dark red around the eyes. The skin color does not transfer to the flesh. The flesh cooks multiuse and has a nice nutty flavor. It’s a mutation from Red Moon, Red Moon is a similar tasting red skinned variety obtained by Japanese potato researchers from the U.S.
