Purple Viking Potato

Deliciously Different

  • Tops Yukon Gold in taste tests
  • Superior all-purpose potato
  • Large tubers with purplish-pink skins
  • Creamy white flesh with rich, buttery flavor
  • Tops for baking
  • Certified seed potatoes
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!
