Mini white potatoes are small to medium in size and are oblong to round with a slightly flattened and irregular shape, approximately five centimeters in diameter. The smooth, off-white to cream-colored skin is thin to the point where it almost appears translucent and is speckled with faint, medium-set eyes and brown spots. The white flesh is firm, dense, and has a low starch content and a waxy texture. When cooked, White Rose potatoes are smooth and creamy with a buttery and earthy flavor.
Mini white potatoes are available year-round, with peak season in the late spring through early summer.
Mini white potatoes are best suited for cooked applications such as boiling, frying, baking, or mashing.

Boil, mash, and serve as is or use it to stuff tacos, thicken soups, or make twice baked potatoes. Mini white potatoes pair well with onions, garlic, poultry, shallots, smoked Gruyere cheese, rosemary, mustard, and white pepper.

Avoid refrigeration as the cold temperatures will cause the potato to become overly sweet and turn a dark unappetizing color.
