In countries such as the Netherlands and Belgium, the potato even forms the basis for recipes. Globally, there are about 4.000 varieties of potatoes, varying from well-known varieties such as the Doré and the Eigenheimer to much lesser-known potato varieties such as the Folva and the Primura.

White and red skinned potato types

The names of the types of potatoes already indicate it: we look at the color of the potato’s skin. At that point we distinguish between potatoes with a white skin and potatoes with a red skin. Within these types of potatoes, a distinction can be made in many areas. For example, at Westhoeve Potatoes we see the size of the potatoes as an important factor. We also look at how the potatoes are delivered: free of soil or even brushed and / or washed.
