Salad Blue - Novelty Heritage Seed Potatoes - Pack of 10
Product ref: POT100
First grown in Scotland in the 1900's, Salad Blue is very blue. The skin and flesh are both a strong, deep blue. The potato is not a salad - it has high dry matter and fries and mashes well but it does not boil well because it is fluffy and disintegrates. Tuber shape is short and oval. Flavour is mild although texture is quite good. The blue pigment is an anthocyanin. It is an antioxidant, and Nutritionalists say antioxidants provide many health benefits, including protection against cancer and other diseases. Makes great novelty blue mash and chips! These Seed potatoes are for planting in Spring, and are for delivery between February & May.
