Wiki Info:

In the 1900s, many Dutch and Belgian immigrants began settling in the “Banana Belt” region of southern Ontario. Many of these immigrants began vegetable farming around the towns of Simcoe, Leamington and Harrow along the shore of Lake Erie. In the 1950s the vegetable growers of this region began petitioning for the breeding rights and licensing for a yellow fleshed potato variety as they were used to growing in Europe. For Gary Johnston this began the nearly 30 year development of the 'Yukon Gold' Potato.

In 1953, Johnston was one of the scientists that owned the potato development lab at the Ontario Agriculture College at the University of Guelph. In 1959 one of Johnston’s graduate students, a young man originally from Peru, told him of a small, rough, deep yellowed flesh potato (Solanum gonicalix, known as papa amarilla, "yellow potato"[2]) that was grown by the indigenous communities in the Peruvian Andes. In Lima, this variety is a delicacy due to its bright color and distinct flavor. After trying these Peruvian potatoes, Johnston set out to breed a variety with the same color and flavor characteristics but larger in size and with a smoother shape, similar to the potatoes being grown in the Banana Belt. In 1966, the development team made their first cross between a W5289-4 (2x cross between 'Yema de huevo' and 2x Katahdin) and a 'Norgleam' potato native to North Dakota. After the 66th cross that year, true seed was produced and the G6666 was created.

Johnston initially named the variety “Yukon”, for the Yukon River and gold rush country in Northern Canada. Charlie Bishop suggested adding “Gold” to better reflect the color and appearance of the potato.
