Magic Molly Potato

Solanum tuberosum

A strikingly purple fingerling.

Increasingly popular within specialty potato circles, Magic Molly is known for its deep purple color and dark, nearly black skins. Baked, boiled, or roasted, it's an exceptional all-purpose potato; but roasting will bring out its delectably earthy undertones. The texture is more waxy than mealy, and the flesh retains a deep purple hue even when boiled. Magic Molly also has more phytonutrients, anthocyanins and other antioxidants than spinach and broccoli! The tuber set is medium; space 3-5 tubers evenly throughout the hill. While not a true fingerling, Magic Molly can be allowed to mature for an ample crop or harvested early for dainty "fingerling" style potatoes. Part of the Cornell breeding program and sourced through Tucker Farms, a century-old family-owned and operated potato farm in Upstate New York.  Potatoes ship from mid-April through early May. See below for more shipping details.

Potato tubers ship from mid-April through early May, depending on your location. If you purchase seeds and dahlia tubers at the same time anytime from January until the ship date for your region, you will receive two shipments—a prompt shipment of seeds and a later shipment of tubers—and the shipping fees shown at checkout will take this second delivery into account. This product does not ship internationally.
