Wilcox started growing potatoes and onions in the volcanic Pukekohe soil in the early 1930’s.
Now, four generations on, we’re still growing the most delicious varieties of potatoes, onions, and carrots in the most fertile areas all over New Zealand.
It’s what we do to bring the best tasting goodness to your table every night.
Perlas are small, new season potatoes that are washed and ready fresh out of the box. Their small size means they cook easily and consistently, retain their goodness and taste delicious. Perlas have delicate, fine skins; leave them on, no peeling required! They are high in vitamin C and fibre, particularly with the skins on, achieving the National Heart Foundation tick. They have a smooth waxy texture and hold their shape well when cooked. Great for every occasion and are excellent served either hot or cold. Perfect for easy and healthy family meals; thrown on the BBQ, in a salad, or gently boiled and tossed in a little olive oil and sprinkled with herbs and seasoning. Perlas Baby potatoes are perfect if you're after a smaller bite size potato...great for kebabs and salads . Perlas are only available during the spring and summer seasons, from September through to March.
