Hi to the Australian contingent. I'm looking for the name of a potato variety grown and sold retail in Australia that's good for frying.

The potatoes that Simplot supply to Macca's over here for chips, are mainly "Russets" however they do also supply "Bismarck's" as well.

Hope this helps

I would recommend Bintjes - they readily available and relatively cheap.

There is more information on Aussie spuds varities and where to buy them at: http://www.whitehat.com.au/Food/Ingredients/Vegetables/Potatoes.html
