These are truly beautiful potatoes: large, round in shape, with a rich, dark purple skin lightly dappled with pink splashes and stripes. Inside, the fine-textured, firm flesh is creamy white, smooth, and truly delicious. Heirloom Viking was first introduced almost 60 years ago by the potato improvement program at North Dakota State University.
Viking tubers always cook up meaty and moist with a rich, sweet, buttery flavor. In taste tests, our potato loving family rated them better tasting than “Yukon” types! They are great eating, whether you bake, mash or cut them up to roast up crisp in the oven. This high-yielding and reliable variety has good scab resistance. You'll want to grow this tasty all-purpose potato every season. Viking is an excellent keeper in storage.
