Eye-catching, colourful purple potatoes that are a cut above the image of the ‘standard’ potato. Double Fun is one of them.
Double Fun has a good yield, medium maturing with medium-large oval tubers. The purple tubers are very uniform in size and shape. Double Fun has a medium good dormancy and stores well. Around 12 tubers per plant. Good resistance to common scab and resistant to PCN (Golden Nematodes). Nitrogen need, similar to other medium maturing varieties. Plant rather narrow in the row when smaller size profile is desired.
Double Fun is sometimes double coloured: purple flesh with yellow splashes. Its colour is what makes the Double Fun stand out from all other potatoes. Anthocyanin is a pigment that creates the purple colour in the potatoes, therefore Double Fun also has a high antioxidant content. Double Fun has a medium starch content and a slightly floury texture. The flavour is rather neutral with a mild nutty tone. Preferred uses: roasting, grilling, baking, mashing or frying. Double Fun also complements green salad flavours.
