Yukon Golds are not commercially available in Finland, but we have been growing those now quite many years. Back in 1996, when we lived in USA we smuggled 13 tubers in a luggage. My in-laws liked those so much that year by year they increased the amount of Yukon Golds planted on their field.
Since my mother-in-law passed two years ago we have now taken over the potato planting task and even we do not grow and eat as much potatoes as they used to do, Yukon Gold still gets most rows on the field. The older generation grew their own potatoes as necessity and we do it just as a hobby and to get varieties, which are not sold in any stores.
