Purple Peruvian Potato
Certified Organic Seed
An Andean Heirloom with Unique Qualities.
Purple Peruvian is a treasured heirloom of the Andean mountains that has very unique characteristics. Close to its wild roots, this variety displays great drought and heat tolerance and is perfectly suited to growing in the Northern Hemisphere. The fingerlings are mid-sized sporting many eyes; the skin is thin and doesn't need peeling; and the tubers sparkle with blue-and-white stars when cut open. A little longer than most fingerling varieties, Purple Peruvians need at least 110 days to mature, using autumn rains to set their tubers. Sourced through Milkweed Tussock Tubers, a small-scale potato farm employing regenerative farming practices in Upstate New York.

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.
