Purple Majesty

Early maincrop at Potato Day

Dr Catherine Tsang of the University of Colorado has researched the nutritional properties of Purple Majesty, and said: “Our research specifically looked at Purple Majesty potatoes which, unlike white potatoes, contain a natural pigment called anthocyanins. It’s this pigment that gives the potato the purple appearance, but more importantly, it possesses antioxidant properties, which are maintained even after cooking.”
