Red Bliss Potatoes have bright red skin with creamy white flesh. They're slightly bitter and have a firm, moist and waxy texture. They're best for soups, stews, boiling, roasting, potato salad and casseroles, and worst for mashing. Red potatoes are small to medium in size and are round or oval with a somewhat uniform shape. The thin skin is ruby to deep red and is smooth with some light brown speckling, spots, and indentations. When cooked, Red potatoes have a waxy and dense texture and a mild, buttery, and earthy flavor.
