A type of potato, such as a russet or white potato, that have brown skins and white flesh and are commonly used for baking, but can also be used for mashing, frying, broiling, or deep fat frying (French fries). They have a low moisture content, high starch content, and a dry, crumbly texture after baking.

When selecting, choose those that are firm and plump, avoiding those that have shriveled skins, sprouting eyes, soft spots, blemishes and green spots. Store potatoes in a cool dry place. They will keep at room temperature for up to two weeks and longer when stored in cool temperatures. Do not store in the refrigerator because the cold temperatures will convert the starches into sugar and the potato will become sweet and turn a dark color when cooked. Do not store with onions, the gas given off by onions accelerate the decay of potatoes.
