Purple-blue potatoes are more seasonal than other potato types. They have an earthy, nutty flavor and moist, firm flesh. Purple-blues are small to medium potatoes with an oblong to fingerling shape. And, of course, they are best known for their eye-catching deep purple, blue skin.
With a low sugar and high starch content, purple-blue potatoes are delicate and optimal when lightly cooked. Preserve their color and achieve best consistency by microwaving, steaming or baking purple-blue potatoes. Grilled or roasted, they add vibrant flavor and color to salads.
