Nutrition content. Also read that purple potatoes help lower blood pressure. These are purple throughout and are touted to maintain their color, as opposed to other purple varieties.

Do you know how much a one pound plant will produce? Trying to determine how many to order. Thanks in advance! Tommy T
Tommy T on Apr 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The old estimate is a 1:10 ratio, so if you plant 1lb of seed potato, you should harvest 10lb of potatoes. The better the soil (loamy, nutrient-rich) the better the yield!
are this indeterminate or determinate plants ?
Todd W on Mar 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They are determinate.

Grew amazingly.
Easy to grow and grew abundantly. Not my favorite flavor of potato, but not bad at all either. Made for fun mashed potatoes for the kids... not you need to make mashed potatoes fun for kids.

Blue Chips
This blue potato made for delicious oven baked chips.I had an odd planting season and the plants were not impressive at first, but the blue flowers were pretty and the harvest was more than I had anticipated considering the small size of the plant. I recommend the Adirondack blue potato if you like chips.
