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)

Review:

This plant is amazing. First of all, the slips were gorgeous and very healthy. I planted late April, and pulled up after first frost in November. I planted them in a HUGE garden bed I made that is 4x6 ft, and about 3 1/2 feet deep. Let me tell you.... I got 56 lbs of sweet potatoes off these 3 slips. Most I dug up were at least 2 feet down. It took me 2 hrs to harvest them all. On top of that, the bugs NEVER touched them, and I did not water the plant whatsoever for about the last 2 months or so. Also, the greens are totally edible and delicious. Just a tiny bit bitter, but to me tasted like a cross between spinach and pumpkin. The greens took over a 12x10 ft area. Just incredible. The sweet potato is on the dry side and has an earthy flavour. A lot of different cultures boil these kinds instead of roast because theyre dry. Either way, delicious and EXTREMELY low maintenance.

Review:

A few days ago the first frost hit my vegetable garden, which turned the sweet potato leaves dark and wilted. This is when I decided to take a look underneath. I could not believe my eyes what I dug up! Very large tubers appeared, the size I had never seen before. The largest was 2.5 lbs and the next one 2-1/4#. All together 3 plants produced a heaping bucket full.

Review:

We planted only 6 of these along with our white sweet potatoes, now I wish we had planted ONLY the Molokai! We just dug them last evening and while the white ones were cracked from our crazy drought then flooding rains, the Molokai were smooth, huge and beautiful. Wire worms had damaged the white ones but I have yet to find a wire worm hole in the Molokai. A comparison of taste last night at supper also showed the Molokai Purple as the front runner. Next season we will be planting mainly this variety! Love it, love it, love it!!!

What are the pros? Low maintenance, unique color.

What are the cons? Dry texture, not super sweet.

Review:

Planted three slips in late May, dug mid October. We have loamy clay soil. Basically did nothing - let the rain water them. We had a drought through June but that didn't seem to bother them much. They grew to a 12 foot radius around where we planted the slips, which was fine, because they shaded out any weeds. Yielded about 20 pounds of tubers, up to 12 inches long and 3-4 inches thick. In one area, a runner had rooted and made small but usable tubers. Don't overcook because kind of dry. Not super sweet, but good as a soup, or I imagine any type of casserole type application. The color is unbelievable. Will be trying again next year.

Review:

I ordered these plants when they went on sale because I was told that they would be fine and ready by October so I got my plants in July they went in the ground the second week of July instead of planting them in a bed or in a container I literally took apart my compost pile and I' just stuck them into the leaves put over a netting so the cats would stay out because keep in mind this is an inner-city garden with lots of feral cats we harvested them yesterday me and a couple kids from the Block and some other parents and had a blast I wish I could submit a picture from 5 plants and one that was very frail on arrival we have 20 pounds of potatoes there was literally no maintenance other than watering occasionally when the summer weeks got long and hot otherwise I highly recommend you plant these potatoes where you compost they loved the larger matter to break down
