According to "Sunset's Fresh Produce A to Z," thin-skinned potatoes would include:

Round whites
Long whites (White Rose)
Round reds

"These are firm and waxy textured, ideal for boiling and steaming. They're often called 'new potatoes'."

Since this was printed in 1987, I would venture to guess Yellow fin and Yukon to be thin-skinned as well. Just a guess.

Consider Russets or Idaho potatoes to be thick-skinned.
