Australia: Potato growers hit purple paydirt with colourful crop of spuds

Boring mashed potato is a thing of the past at Wendy and Terrence Rattray’s house. The couple’s Tasmanian-grown potatoes are now being used by top chefs and home cooks across the country and overseas to add colour to their dishes.

Bright pink, purple and yellow potatoes are now part of the Yum range, after the Rattrays spent six years introducing new varieties.
