Russian Blue Potatoes are oblong, with purple brown skin and purple flesh.

The purple flesh has a white ring just under the skin, and is streaked white. The colour doesn't leech into other food items being cooked with it, or onto cutting boards, fingers, etc.

The taste is very mild.

One plant will produce about three pounds (1.3 kg) of potatoes.

Cooking Tips

These potatoes are good for use as waxy potato when harvested early; if harvested later, they are more floury and good for roasting or baking.

The colour intensifies if roasted or baked.

Good with herbs, etc, to jazz up the taste.

Language Notes

The colour is actually purple despite the "blue" name.
