Certified Organic & Non-GMO Seed Potatoes

Viking Purple has all the characteristics of its parent Viking Red, but it has a true purple skin with pink-red splashes. Perhaps its most remarkable attribute is its waxy, snow-white flesh. Drought-resistant and a yielder of large tubers, its unique taste is loved by many and will get sweeter with time.

Planting & Care

  • Fall-planted spuds produce outstanding yields by May. If your area experiences hard winters (USDA Zones 1–7), or you tend to have long, wet spring seasons when rot might be a problem, plant potatoes in the spring.
  • One pound of seed potatoes will plant a row approximately 8' long with seed pieces spaced at 8 - 12" apart.
  • Plan on 1,200 lb/acre (600 lb of fingerlings) when rows are spaced 36" apart with 12" between plants.
  • Under optimal conditions, you can expect to harvest 10–15 pounds of potatoes for every pound of seed potato planted.

Lovely, delicate flavour!

Our first time growing potatoes. We planted this along with three other varieties, in Belmont, CA (in nearly-always chilly, windy, but not-too-foggy hills). In 2.5 months (mid-April thru late June), four pounds of seed potatoes (one pound per variety) in a single, 4'x6' biointensive planted bed, this type yielded just under 7 pounds of potatoes for the single pound of seed we planted. Skins were largely scraped up with the horrible heavy clay and rock "soil" we have here, so none could be saved for seed this time, but OMG, the flavour!! Snowy white, and a delicate, sweet, almost flowery taste. Perfect for parsley potatoes, or light-flavored potato salads. Will certainly plant again. This time, in a potato tower hilled up with fluffy compost.
