Hi there, I live in NEw Zealand and I grow purple spuds in my garden and they are great antioxidants. Our climate here is Alpine. Good for Lowering HBP..

I've been going through the seed catalogs. They have purple skinned potatoes, but so far I have not found a purple variety through and through. My interested deepens!

A goal without a plan is just a wish.

I made a sheepherd's pic with purple potatoes a couple weeks ago - it was really fun, and very tasty. I've only found purple potatoes at Whole Foods, or the local natural food store, Harmony Farms. I even found purple sweet potatoes once :)

A friend of mine made me some purple potatoes. They were incredibly delicious. She said they were very expensive though. Since then, I've looked for them in stores but never seen them.

Great find, Diva! Exciting to hear. Potatoes are a good source of potassium, but like they say, we have to eat them in NON-FRIED ways. Like I did(n't) this evening.
