U.S. customers increasingly are willing to pay higher prices for quality specialty potatoes that come in a variety of colors and sizes. This CIS reports growing data for eight specialty cultivars--Caribe, Epicure, German Butterball, Huckleberry, NorDonna, Russet Norkotah, Viking Red and Yukon Gold. It also includes results of marketing surveys showing greater appreciation in Southern Idaho for these potatoes at Farmers' Markets than at commercial groceries. But the commercial market is growing. Results also show which potatoes customers liked best.
