Some of my ‘Record’ potatoes have purple flesh. What causes this and are they edible.

‘Record’ should have yellow flesh. It may be that some other variety has been mixed in. There no disease or pest that causes this. Perhaps a mineral imbalance. These potatoes should be edible but without determining the exact cause, this is difficult to say.
