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.
The variety is a versatile culinary ingredient that can be baked whole, peeled and roasted, boiled, mashed, even sliced or diced for a high-heat sauté. Sweet potatoes are very high in calcium, vitamin C and beneficial amino acids. Compared to a common sweet potato, the Murasaki is not as creamy dense, but does have a full-bodied flavor.
Available in 5 lb bags or a 40 lb box
