One of the newest additions to the Veggie-Bed’s root crop plot is the Adirondack Blue Potato. This young plant started as a potato sprout several weeks ago. When mature the plant will produce underground potato tubers that have a purple tint skin with blue flesh. Bred from ‘Chieftain’ and ‘Black Russian’; this variety was released by Cornell University.
