What are the pros? Amazing flavor and texture!
What are the cons? Tricky to grow in North Iowa.
I've never grown sweet potatoes. I research and write about old recipes and Baker Creek varieties have informed my work. I'm working on the eighteenth century for a project and when I read the informative and specific description in the catalog I hoped these would be just the crop I needed to give me the taste of the time. These sweet potatoes are WONDERFUL! I will never enjoy eating any other kind now that I've been spoiled by this early Federal-era variety. They need heat and water, both a challenge in North Iowa this year. Still got a good crop and have deep-dug the soil in sunniest spot in the garden for next year. Thanks, Baker Creek, for offering them.
