A sport of the original (red) Purple Smudge. OFPS has expression of its peruvian ancestry, and has actual purple pigment in its skin as a reaction to sunlight. The purple pigment is the same anthocyanin antioxidant that gives blueberries their color. The foliage is also covered with a lacing of anthocyanin. The flavor is best when they have turned to a dark gold color, or a light orange. Surprisingly productive. At least 10 seeds per packet.
