Red potatoes, sometimes called red round or bliss potatoes, have a very thin skin that doesn’t ever need peeling. Their beautiful color helps them look great on a plate.

Red potatoes are lower in starch and usually have a dense, waxy and white flesh with a firm, smooth and moist texture. Because they hold their shape well, they’re great for potato salad, or dishes that call for roasted, boiled or steamed potatoes.
