the Potato Grower
The Wilcox family has been growing potatoes in New Zealand for over 75 years (3 generations) and in all that time we haven’t come across a better tasting new season potato than Perlas Gold. Andean Sunrise is the exclusive potato variety in Perlas Gold. The potato originated in the high Andean mountains, near Lake Titicaca on the border between Peru and Bolivia (this is where the Incas first cultivated the potato). Nowadays,
in New Zealand it is grown exclusively by AS Wilcox for our Perlas Gold boxed potatoes. The delicious, sweet and buttery taste of Perlas Gold potatoes adds that, “special something”, to any meal. Perlas Gold are clean, washed and ready to cook, The skins are thin and delicate and the flesh golden, sweet and buttery. Learn more at
