Potatoes sold specifically for planting are called potato seed.

I did not know that potatoes had seeds. We always cut up potatoes that had eyes and planted those. They do not grow in the tropics...

Last year we found purple potatoes in the gardening section of Wal-Mart. This year I found purple seed potatoes at Atwoods.

DIL got hers from her mom. I think, though, that you can grow your own by allowing a potato to form eyes, then cut up the potato, making sure that each piece contains an eye, and plant those. You might be able to use seed catalogues, too.

It's OK to just say no.

Purple mashed potatoes... now there's something I could really get into!

Thanks for reading and all your comments.
How do grow purple potatoes? Where do you get the seed?

We (DIL & I) are growing all sorts of "oddities" this year. I have always loved purple potatoes, purple cauliflower, red-leafed lettuce, etc. The additional color is a good signal of the additional nutrients in the plant.

yeah, it's a concept thing, not a fact based thing - I tell my kids to take a "brave bite" and try something new, but my eyes were reacting! I'd have to do an override

We grow the purple potatoes. My kids think it's cool. We've tried purple cauliflower before and I've seen other colors. Haven't seen the purple carrots. We've had some yellow ones that we grew in our garden. We've also grown purple bell peppers before.

Interesting how the eyes affect the desire or aversion to eating something new. The beets, sure, the purple potatoes . . . uh, too weird That was the "gut" reaction (eyes really)
