Snow-White Flesh with Purple Skin

PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING:

Seed potatoes cannot be allowed to freeze, therefore, special shipping is required during the Fall/Winter months. Seed potatoes will ship via FedEx Ground To Zones 2-4 only and ships via FedEx 3 Day to Zones 5-8. Shipments to zones 5-8 will only ship on Monday's and Tuesday's (to ensure the potatoes do not sit in a FedEx terminal over the weekend). Orders can’t be cancelled once they’ve shipped.

Potato orders placed up to October 31 will ship as soon as potatoes arrive (ETA 11/14). However, moving forward, from Nov 1st until Mid/Late Spring, we will ONLY ship potatoes to CA, OR, WA, NV and AZ.

If you live outside of these 5 Western states, we cannot ship potatoes to you as they will otherwise invariably freeze during transit. While your specific state might be having decent weather, your order will travel through very cold regions from our CA location to yours. While you certainly can place your order, we will only ship it when the threat of freeze across the nation is over, which typically is in April or May.

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.

  • 80-100 days, mid to late-season
  • Drought resistant
  • Unique taste that gets sweeter with time
  • Certified seed & certified organic
Planting Instructions:
  • 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.
