Bora Valley
Bora Valley 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 great roasted and 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. NEW!

This item will ship on our regular shipping schedule, starting in early April with the warmest hardiness zones. We cannot ship this item any earlier; we regret that we cannot honor any requests to do so.

Fingerlings are long and thin, shaped like small fish or maybe even fingers, displaying various skin and flesh colors. Fingerlings are often prolific and disease-resistant. Though late maturing, the plants set heavily and small ones can be harvested early. Chefs, market farmers and home gardeners find these beautiful potatoes have unequaled flavor and culinary qualities.

LBR indicates field resistance to late blight.
