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, 2017)

What are the pros? Excellent flavor

What are the cons? Wildlife loves the greens

Review:

Ordered these last year to try in our garden - zone 6-7, depending on who you ask. We have heavy duty clay soil, so I tilled and dug at least 2 feet deep to prepare, and built a mound of topsoil and manure a foot above that to give them room to grow. One of the 3 plants died due to herbivore predation, and I lost a significant part of the growing season on the other two when the "predator" nibbled the leaves down to almost nothing. Both plants came back from the assault and we ended up with about eight good sized potatoes from the two combined. I have no doubt that they would have been quite prolific if left alone, and I plan on protecting them better this year. Flavor-wise, these are awesome. A little dry, so they hold up well both baked and as purple hash browns.

What are the pros? Great producer. No pests.

Review:

Planted this and gotten pretty good crop. Ordered this, got 3 plantings and harvested in fall. I had gotten lots and they are considerably sized! I love it!!! And they are so delicious. My test of a good sweet potato is just boiling it and just peeling off the skin and just biting into it. This one is a winner! I will order again. Highly recommended!

What are the pros? easy to grow, beautiful

What are the cons? starchy not very tasteful

Review:

The plants grew very well, no pest ever bothered them and they didn't catch any sickness, they were beautiful. I ordered 3 and got about 9 potatoes one was HUGE but as much as I tried I didn't like the taste. They were very starchy and no matter how I cooked them I could barely eat them.

Review:

I'm reading the reviews and wondering if I received the same potato. I received in the mail the neatest little package of actual live seedlings. Cool ! Planted them in a raised bed/box, even though I have a small urban farm with in-ground beds. I got some good potatoes, but all were fingerlings in size. None of these 8-pounders mentioned in reviews. They were great to eat. I just roasted them whole, and left the skin on. They were excellent. Since we teach culinary school at our farm, I will be ordering again. I'd like to see them turn into bigger potatoes, but frankly, the fingerlings were really excellent.

Review:

I planted these plants in straw bales and was completely astonished on how the sprawling vines overtook my entire garden. They were beautiful vines with leaves having purple hues. I had never grown sweet potatoes before so I patiently waited until I heard others harvesting their's. I stuck my hand into the straw bales and grasped potatoes the size of a skinny cucumber so I waited a little longer to harvest. When we finally separated the straw bales I was in complete shock at the huge potatoes within. One was the size of a football and others a S shape and 1.5 feet long. I wound up with a huge amount of these purple beauties that remained very deep purple when cooked. I've seen reviews that said they were hard to peel, but I found just running them under cold water and using a clean dish scratcher the skin came right off. In the grooves I used a new stiff toothbrush to remove the skin. They do cook much faster than regular potatoes so we've learned to start them first when combining.
