Mayan Potatoes

Filed under: potato — Tags: , , — TopVeg @ 6:26 am

Mayan potatoes were developed in Scotland from an ancient variety which was brought back from the wilds of Peru.

Mayan potatoes:

  • have a nutty  flavour
  • golden coloured flesh
  • creamy, but dry texture
  • chips & roast Mayan potatoes are crispy on the outside but fluffy in the middle
  • bulk up on water
  • cook in a third less time than ‘conventional’ potatoes – saving time and energy
  • are better steamed than boiled because they cook quickly & then break up
  • yield less than  conventional potatoes

There are several varieties of Mayan potato, including these early maincrop varieties:

Mayan Gold
Mayan Queen
Mayan Twilight

Mayan Gold gets its golden colour from its high levels of carotene.  Carotene is an antioxidant & features in anti-carcinogenic diets.  So, Mayan potatoes are particularly good for you as well as being a tasty part of a meal.
