True new potatoes are freshly dug and may be as small as marbles or as large as full-size potatoes. Since the sugars in new potatoes haven't converted to starch, they have a crispy texture and thin skin, which means they cook quickly. Keep an eye out for them in your produce section or at your local farmer's market from late spring through early summer.
