purple potato

Comments:
I ordered this last year. It produced very well -- I was satisfied -but not as well as much as the ponitac red that does very well in clay soils. About half as much -- still every hill was filled with plenty of potatoes - most small but some very large. If you cook it and let it cool -- it has a waxy texture - and does wonderful if you shred it and dehydrate it to use later in the winter for recipes. We are on a low glycemic diet - low carb diet because of health reasons. Right now there is a lot of research going on that resistent starch is needed for gut health. Potatoes that are waxy are the ones that are lower on the glycemic diet - if you let them cool for a day before eating them the pontiac reds glycemic load is 55 -- low is consider 54 -- so that is pretty good. It would be my guess that the purple majestic would be even lower

We are still enjoying out harvest last fall - it's the middle of January. This potato keeps well. We love them mashed, scalloped, fried. The thick skin has deterred the onset of selenium on the peel as compared to our other potatoes. A must for next year's garden.
