This is one potato that's just as pretty as it tastes. The smooth, red-splashed purple skin of this mid-season variety contrasts beautifully with the pure white flesh held within. These gorgeous round tubers are perfect for baking or mashing with just a little salt and pepper to savor their creamy, sweet, gourmet flavor.

Viking Purple Potato is an excellent storage variety, allowing you to enjoy more of your crop over a longer period. It produces mostly 3½ to 4-inch round tubers, but will occasionally wow you with a few whoppers. Compact plants are great for growing more potatoes in less space, and offer excellent resistance to scab and tolerance of heat and drought. Each 2-pound bag will sow 20 to 25 feet of row and yield more than 25 pounds of potatoes. They're simply the best way to grow potatoes.

Like all potatoes, Viking Purple Potato fares best in sandy, enriched soil, but if you have heavy or clay soil, just use a raised bed or plant the tubers more shallowly, mulching them well with straw.
