Violetta Seed Potatoes

  • Violetta potatoes are a Violet blue/purple fleshed Maincrop.
  • Specialist heritage/gourmet French potato variety.
  • They have a delicate sweet flavour, a slightly fluffy flesh and work well in savoury dishes.
  • Have a dark blue, almost black, skin and dark violet-blue flesh; they have a characteristic nutty flavour and smell of chestnuts.
  • The colour is retained in cooking, and is due to natural pigment.  To retain the colour, it’s best to keep the skin on.
  • The tubers are elongated with sunken eyes they are thick-skinned, and thus keep well.
  • Also called Vitelotte noire, Négresseor Truffe de Chine.
