Many of our customers have been searching for the perfect purple potato for some time and we think we've found one. This potato won't take over your garden, produces decent size tubers and is easy to clean
Purple Heart offers the best of both worlds. It is like the best of Urenika and Agria rolled into one. Bred by the Plant and Food team at Lincoln, Purple Heart has the larger oval shape and smooth skin of a modern variety but the intense inky skin and dense mottled purple flesh of some Maori potato varieties.
A smooth skin makes it easy to scrub and bake so you don’t lose any of those antioxidants by peeling. It also keeps its purple colour when cooked making it attractive in salads or wedges. The flesh is dense so it holds its shape when cooked.
And like all purple vegetables, it is high in anthocyanins – an antioxidant that recent research suggests has many protective qualities for different systems in our bodies from joints to heart to brain health.
Price is for a 1 kilo bag.
