Add some color to your vegetable garden!

Spice up your vegetable garden by adding Purple Peruvian Potatoes. This potatoes, originally from Peru, as suggested by their name, grow well in the South Eastern US. And again as their name suggests, these potatoes are actually purple! And not just a purple skin, but purple all the way through!

These potatoes make a great addition to a salad once you harvest them and can be a great topic of conversation about foods from around the world.

Check out this website for seeds and growing information!
