Sweet Potato, Molokai Purple (3 Plants, Ships April-June)

         
 
29 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 

Purple-fleshed type that is a locally-developed, signature type on the islands, but seldom offered elsewhere. Much higher in antioxidants than orange-fleshed types. Very sweet-fleshed and creamy, with overtones of chestnut in the flavor. Perfect as-is when baked or roasted, needing no further adornment. Deep purple flesh and skins. 3 plants. We are super excited to be offering a selection of live plants, these are produced for us by tissue culture, a natural process that produces plants that are generally high-quality and disease free. We have some stunning new food crops in our plant listing, we hope you will try some of the exciting rare plants we offer this year. Pre-order now, as supplies on some these will be limited. The plants we ship are small, but sturdy, and we offer a 30 day guarantee on live plants. Most plants will be 6”-12” in height. Plants will ship as available after the first of April to the end of June. We will ship orders to southern zones first. No guaranteed delivery dates. No orders shipped outside of the USA. No Extra shipping costs, just pay our regular $3.50. (PRE-ORDER PLANTS WILL SHIP AFTER APRIL 1, 2018)

What are the pros? Fast growing, beautiful greens

What are the cons? None

Review:

I got these plants very quickly. I put them in a grow bag with a muchly soil mix. The greens are off and running like crazy. This year I am not planning on a harvest, just reproduction of the slips for more plants later. I can't even keep up with how fast they are growing. A total win!

Review:

Molokai Purple sweet potato plants (3) arrived today in excellent condition:healthy roots in a small soil "cell-pack shape", not pot-bound, leaves barely wilted; much bigger than I expected. I'm in N.Arizona so maybe close to shipping point. So now to see how they grow and taste.

What are the pros? very hardy, lovely vines

What are the cons? none realy

Review:

2016 was a strange growing year all the way around. it stayed cold and wet a lot longer than normal. I worried I might have lost them at one point because we had a couple of realy cold nights were I lost some of the early leaves but all of the tiny plugs made it and bounced back as soon as it warmed up. the ground I chose was a new spot and not worked very deep so I was not surprised that I did not get a lot of tubers and what I did get was fairly small for the most part but I think the strange weather had a lot to do with this. I managed to get slips to grow from at least one of the realy small roots so I have given them a better spot this year. this year is already warmer so I can hope for better this year :)

Review:

We planted these in 2016, an average growing season for us. Plants did well and yielded about 2 pounds of slender tubers about 2" in diameter per plant. We dug these when my centennials (early variety) were ready but they should have been left another couple weeks. The size would have increased if we had. I tried baking them in the jacket wrapped in foil: very dry. Converted the flesh to sweet potato casserole: my family's first response was the casserole texture reminded them of fudge! They liked the flavor and unusual deep purple color. These really can't be compared to any red sweet potato. They are in a class all their own. My favorite way to serve these is to scrub them, slice them thin on a food slicer. Lay the slices on parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees F for about 20-25 minutes. Outstanding flavor in a blue chip! I also tested the flavor of the chips against red and white sweet potatoes. The blue ones were our favorites! Long keeping.
