Which variety of potato is best for chips?
We are planning to have a potato chip production line. We would like to know which variety of potato we should grow knowing that we are based in Saudi Arabia.
If you are planning to have a potato chip production line, there are two main varieties you can grow: Yukon gold or Russet. The Yukon gold variety (or any other variety of yellow potatoes) are considered ideal for potato chips because they are basically an all purpose variety; which can be used for mashed potatoes or frying as well. That's why most potato chips are made from Yukon gold potatoes.
Russet potatoes can also be used for chips. The Russet variety is very easy to grow and they can represent a more inexpensive alternative, even though Russets are considered to be more starchy.
Potatoes like Yukon Gold and Russet potatoes can be used for potato chips, so you have two great varieties to chose from.
