Adirondack Blue Potato, also known as a "purple potato" is a strikingly unique variety of blue-fleshed potatoes with a purple tint. These purple potatoes are an excellent way to add flair and nutrition to your typical potato side dish as they hold their color when cooked. Adirondack Blue potatoes are rich in polyphenol antioxidants that are linked to reducing health disease risk and improving vision health.
About Seed Potatoes: Seed potatoes produce potatoes that are an exact clone of the mother seed potato. Seed potatoes are not the same as true potato seeds, which are seeds harvested from the berries of potato plants. True potato seeds will not produce genetically identical potatoes to the potato plant. Growers grow from seed potatoes to ensure the desired qualities (disease-resistance, high-yields) of a potato is passed down.
