Midnight Moon potato: Purple is the new yellow

Midnight Moon is now being packed for its first year of fresh market commercial production. This new-to-the-market, all-purpose variety is a result of fifteen years of development at Colorado State University. After five additional years of seed development there is now sufficient volume for distribution. In 2015 the Midnight Moon seed was purchased for development by Gunrock Management, a group of three growers in Colorado who source and grow specialty potatoes for fresh market. They also bought exclusive rights for the Masquerade potato back in 2014. Midnight Moon and Masquerade are both packed in Mosca, Colorado in fifty pound bulk cases with GTIN identification codes.
