Purple Potatoes

Not only is this our first year growing potatoes, but we’re growing PURPLE potatoes! We’re also growing Yukon Golds and Russets but these South American purple beauties, called “All Blue”, have our full attention!

Unlike their white-fleshed cousins, purple potatoes are rich in anthocyanin. This antioxidant is common in many berries and is believed to boost your immune system.
