Fields of Choice & Taste

Delta Kumara

We at Delta have continued to introduce new varieties. Most of us are very familiar with the long-time favourite Red Kumara but the Red is no longer the only variety. Now you can get Orange, Gold and Purple varieties. For “Foodies” and us this extends the opportunities for the ways that you use kumara.

It’s a Matter of Taste
The red kumara has a creamy coloured flesh, a mellow flavour and a firm texture. Leave the skin on and retain a lovely red that will enhance your plate presentation.

The gold kumara is both sweeter to the taste and softer in texture than the red. Its flesh and its skin are gold so, peeled or unpeeled, it will add colour to whatever dish you are serving. If you want a vegetable that will offer both a degree of softness and sweetness to the palate, then the gold kumara makes an excellent choice.

The orange kumara is an exciting variety with both orange skin and orange flesh. Firm like the red it is the sweetest of all the varieties now available. As a way to add colour and variety, be sure to try orange kumara.

So if you love the red, gold or orange kumara described here, you'll love the newest addition to our kumara family - purple kumara.  With deep purple skin and purple flesh that holds its colour when cooked, you'll fall in love with kumara all over again. Versatile, nourishing and oh-so purple, simply get cooking and enjoy. Our purple beauties are ideal for mashing, making chips or turning into a wickedly purple soup or dip.
