Large, oval to oblong growing, very dark blue to light purple skin and pale yellow flesh. The tubers have tendency to grow above the soil line and turn black if exposed to light. This heirloom variety from the Cape Breton Island of Nova Scotia - Duncan Boniface MacNeil is reported to have grown this heirloom variety. Very tasty.
