Purple Viking

Purple Viking
Truly a beautiful potato, with deep purple skin dappled with pink splashes and stripes. Bright white and creamy-good, the flesh bakes or mashes perfectly. This variety produces what we call "lunkers," large oversized potatoes, so plant close (8"-10") to control size. An acceptable substitute for Caribe as it bulks quickly, has beautiful coloring and delicious eating qualities. Small-to-medium spreading plant has some resistance to leafhoppers. (This variety is included in our Purple and Red Trial Collection.) Sustainable.

Organic seed failed the winter test for final certification and is unavailable for 2017.

Suggested substitutes:
Caribe, Masquerade
