I believe the Amandine flower to be purple. Mine (SW England) just starting to show above ground, can't wait!

A delicious potato. Never did flower for me. Thought it was supposed to. Ended up harvesting them 90 days after sowing seed potato, so I'm not sure about the 50-55 day to maturity they claim. But that doesn't matter to me.

Steamed a few for dinner tonight. Cut them open, added a little butter. Melt in your mouth good. The best potato I ever had. Excellent potatoey taste.

Will grow again if I can get seed potato. Don't think there will be enough left to save for seed after we get done eating them.
