Bora Valley

Bora Valley organic

purple skin, purple and white variegated flesh Bora means ‘purple’ in Korean, which describes Bora Valley through and through.

Also known as Dr. Lim’s Potato after its breeder Dr. Hak-Tae Lim, whose research shows Bora Valley to be especially high in vitamin C and antioxidants. He considers his potato a “functional food” that can prevent obesity, chronic constipation, gastrointestinal disorders and hyperlipidemia. Experiments have shown the juice of Bora Valley to treat ulcers in rats.

Recommended for fresh (yes, uncooked) table use and juicing, but also delicious and nutty roasted or steamed. Does a slathering of butter cancel out those super health benefits? Tests under way.

This flashy new variety matures midseason with good yields and storability. Moderately resistant to late blight, scab and hollow heart, but susceptible to black scurf. Vigorous sprawling dark purple-green vines. Organic seed only.
