Japanese Sweet Potatoes, Murasaki, 350g

Japanese Sweet Potatoes, Murasaki, 350g Vegetables

Murasaki, a purple-skinned Japanese sweet potato, is a summer standout with distinctive nutty flavor. The purple beauty's soft white flesh is loaded with vitamin C and dietary fiber. Robust, Murasaki is resistant to both southern root-knot nematode and Fusarium root rot.

Murasaki sweet potatoes are characterized by their deep purple skin and creamy white flesh, as well as their extra starchy texture. 

Although they're sometimes labeled "Japanese sweet potatoes," Murasaki sweet potatoes were actually developed in Louisiana. The name Murasaki means "purple" in Japanese, as the potato is similar in look and taste to many Asian types. The variety, invented in 2001 and patented by the Louisiana Experiment Station, was released to growers in 2008. Despite the fact that they were developed in Louisiana, Murasaki sweet potatoes are mostly grown in California. 

You can use Murasaki sweet potatoes much like you would russet potatoes. Their high starch content makes them ideal for roasting, either whole or cubed. Cooked on high heat, they get irresistibly crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside (hello, purple oven fries!). You can also puree them for use in soups or stews.
