Cyprus Potatoes: Also known as Cypriot, Cyprus potatoes is a general name given to describe a number of varieties of potatoes grown on the island of Cyprus. Cyprus potatoes are generally medium to large in size and are oval to round in shape, varying in both size and shape depending on the specific variety. The light brown to tan skin is smooth, fairly even, and is covered in dark brown spots with a slightly red appearance due to the mineral-rich red soils that remain on the raw potato. Its flesh is deep yellow to gold and is firm, slippery, and dense. When cooked, Cyprus potatoes have a rich, earthy, and buttery flavour. Cyprus potatoes are best suited for cooked applications such as roasting, boiling, baking, frying, or steaming.
