Vitelotte – the original French purple heritage variety. Dating back to the early 19th century this purple skinned and purple fleshed potato has a chestnutty flavour and is rich in anti-oxidants. Quite a versatile variety you can cook it in most ways to add a splash of colour to your meals. Try it in a salad, roasted or use it to make gnocchi or gratin.

Being one of our colourful varieties, Vitelotte is rich in antioxidants, particularly anthocyanin which lays claim to a variety of health benefits including improved cardiovascular health, dementia prevention and increased longevity. As well as the fact that potatoes are very low in sugar and salt and are gluten- and fat-free this variety is definitely one to try if you are looking for a healthy meal option.

This variety can also be found in our 5kg Mixed Exotic Potato Selection Box as well as a part of our Fingerling Trio.
