A taste-test favorite, Purple Viking is a large, early, all-purpose potato that tops the acclaimed Yukon Gold in terms of taste! The meaty tubers have unique purple-pink mottled skin and moist, bright white flesh with a rich, slightly sweet and buttery flavor. Excellent for both mashing and baking. Purple Viking is a certified seed potato and performs best in full sun, loamy and sandy soils, producing high yields of 2 lb. potatoes. For optimal yields, space the tubers 12-15 in. apart, providing a space of 30-36 in. between the rows. Zones 3-9.
