A variety of new potato that has a slightly irregular oval shape and beige-white skin that turns slightly pink when exposed to light. It has a firm textured, white flesh. The Epicure potato is characterized by the distinctive eyes, which are deep, wide slits and the unusual flavor, which is more robust than many other varieties of new potatoes. They are good potatoes for boiling and 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.
