With a golden-tan skin and creamy yellow flesh, it's an ideal potato for all culinary uses (in particular, scalloped potatoes layered with cheese, cream, and chives). Each Carola crop provides abundant yields, so be sure to take your Gathering Apron when you go to harvest them. In addition, these potatoes are disease and Scab resistant.
