Rule of thumb is that waxy potatoes are best for boiling, russets for
baking and mashing, Yukon Golds can go either way.  I use white rose
for corned beef and cabbage, but have used red ones if they looked
better in the market.  Whatever you use, don't overcook 'em.    -aem

Ironically, the potatoes with the best flavor--russets--fall apart too fast. 
I still use them! However, if you want them to hold up, use new potatoes, 
which have a firmer, "waxier" texture.
