Desiree potatoes have a firm, creamy tasting flesh making them ideal for smooth mash or being cooked in a sauce, such as our favourite Potato Dauphinoise/Dauphinoise Potatoes. Desiree are available across the major retailers and are easily recognisable by their lovely red skin and light yellow flesh. Desiree are normally larger, longer and oval shape.
