On trend for 2018: Purple is the new black!

1st February 2018

Following on from increasing trends of 2017, it has been predicted that purple vegetables are going to become a top trend for 2018. The trend has stemmed from the good intentions of those healthy shoppers that are aiming to eat vegetables that are naturally the colours of the rainbow. And according to health organisations this isn't a bad thing as it is a recipe for good health, taking in a wider range of nutrients. 
And our newest variety of kumara fits right into this trend!
Purple and combined with all the health benefits the sweet potato owns as its own, this is definitely something to try.

This trendy new vegetable even got a mention on an article on "Top trendy vegetables that are taking the Culinary World by Storm"

Organic retailer Whole Foods stated in a recent report that the power of purple goes beyond the vibrant colour and often indicates nutrient density and antioxidants.
