We have a good selection of Purple Potatoes with varying degrees of Purple included. These include the completely Purple Violetta with a Purple skin, and flesh.
Then we have the forgotten variety Shetland Black 1916 which has a Purple / blue anti-oxidant ring on the inside.
The next interesting variety is Mr Little’s Yetholm Gypsy 1899 which has a combination of Purple, blue, red and white skin colour.
The Purple Potatoes have Antioxidants, which protect your cells against the effects of free radicals – molecules produced when your body breaks down food or is exposed to tobacco smoke and radiation. Free radicals may play a role in heart disease, cancer and other diseases.
