Purple Viking Potatoes

FREE $25 Off Any Order Of $50 Or More!
 

Deliciously Different

Early. Large spuds are superior all-purpose potatoes, but are especially delicious for baking. Once cut open, these uniquely colored potatoes reveal delicious creamy white flesh that is meaty and moist with a rich, slightly sweet and buttery flavor. Our taste testers preferred them over Yukon!

Zones: 3 - 9 annual
Height: 2 - 3 feet.
Shade Requirement: Full Sun.
