Kaipara Kumara supply red, orange and gold Sweet As! kumara exclusively to Countdown in convenient 850g packs. Look for the 3 types in your local Countdown. They cook the same but look and taste deliciously different.
(Owairaka) is the most recognised kumara in NZ with a distinctive red skin, a creamy white firm textured flesh. Slice with skin on and bake with red onions. Find out more about Red Kumara here...
(Beauregard) has a rich orange flesh and is the sweetest of the 3 varieties. Try in a caramelised roast vege salad. Find out more about Orange Kumara here...
(Toka Toka) has a golden skin and flesh and a sweeter taste than red kumara. Try in a creamy chicken curry. Find out more about Gold Kumara here...

The Odd Bunch Kumara
A fantastic initiative by Countdown in utilising product not usually on sale in the premium loose section of their produce displays. As the brand suggests – “Unique produce that dreams of being tasted, not wasted.” These kumara may be a bit ugly and damaged – but they still taste great. They come in 1.5kg and 3.0kg bags.
