Smooth, midnight blue, fairly thin skin; deep purple flesh. Steams to deep lavender with pale rim; moist, light, fine, soft flesh. Bakes to dark lavender-violet; tender, even texture; skin stays deep blue; well-balanced taste and texture. Most versatile of the blues tasted; can be cooked many different ways. Dress with vinaigrette to sharpen color and use as salad accent, in small bits.
