Red creamer potatoes, botanically classified as Solanum tuberosum, are the young, immature potato of many red potato varieties and belong to the Solanaceae, or nightshade family. Most Red creamer potatoes are the early rose cultivar, which became the most widely grown potato in the United States in the 19th century due to its prolific growth habits and resistance to disease.

Red creamer potatoes are best suited for cooked applications such as boiling, mashing, baking, and roasting. Red creamer potatoes hold their shape when cooked because of their waxy texture and are commonly used in potato salads, soups, stews, and goulash. They can also be diced and used in curries, mixed into clam chowder, baked and dressed with toppings, or roasted and smashed for a crispy and soft side dish. Red creamer potatoes pair well with parmesan, cheddar, garlic, onions, spices and herbs such as parsley, chives, thyme, rosemary, and smoked paprika, meats such as chicken, pork, and beef, and vegetables such as asparagus, broccoli, zucchini, and Brussel sprouts. They will keep for a couple of weeks when stored in a cool, dry, and dark place.
