I don't eat purple potatoes. I like to get my PP elsewhere.

Starchy tubers are better if coloured.
Superior to potatoes are sweet potatoes, Ipomoea batatas, which is related to convolvulus. They come in a range of colours, and the darker the colour, the more nutrients it contains. Sweet potatoes are rich in fibre and have fewer calories per kilogram than potatoes.

I have grown PPs, but since they are almost tasteless, I quit doing so. Nice P though, if you want to add them to a salad.
