What are the pros? Great taste & edible greens
What are the cons? Took time to establish
The first season I grew these was initially disappointing. They arrived late and only two of the three plants survived. At season's end I had a lot of vine growth but found very few tubers. I harvested the few I found, then pulled up all the vines, mentally chalking it up to a failed experiment. However... I had evidently missed some of the tubers, since new vines sprouted vigorously in the spring. I decided to let them grow and by summer's end I had a perfectly gorgeous ground cover. The vines had literally gone wild!
I don't think this is the most productive sweet potato, but it is delicious. The greens are also wonderful in a salad or as a cooked vegetable; and if you live in a climate like mine, you can look forward to a self-renewing ground cover each year if you leave a few of the smaller tubers in the ground. I love this sweet potato.
