Landrace: locally-adapted diversity

Yes, blue/purple potatoes make seeds. I have grown some from seeds. Taste tends towards too earthy to be palatable. In my garden I haven't found a blue/purple potato that grew vigorously. My lines died out because they produced fewer tubers in succeeding years than went into the ground, and no seeds. I could get more blue/purple seeds from http://newworldcrops.com

Here's what some of my blue potatoes looked like.
