(Ipomoea batatas) A lovely pink skinned sweet potato from the deserts of Oman, a beautiful country on the Arabian peninsula. Found in a remote oasis in the Northern mountains. This rare variety has a delicious dry flesh that is a nice cream color. Super good tasting and did well here in Missouri. 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? culinary versatility, flavor

What are the cons? price (but not too bad)

Review:

This sweet potato is an interesting variety, in that it has pink skin, but is even whiter fleshed than the "white" variety I purchased from a grocery store. When freshly dug, I even dared to use it in a traditional potato salad! I have never eaten a sweet potato that I wanted to do this with. The Omani is like the "red potato" of sweet potatoes. It does not seem to produce as heavy as the common Beauregard cultivar (but what does?) but it does often make sweet potatoes right under the plant like Beauregards do. Once cured, these might make superb sweet potato fries. The Omani pink seems to also grow strange shaped roots like the Beauregard sometimes does. Its a shame that local garden centers in the United States do not sell more varieties of sweet potato slips.

What are the pros? Amazing leaves

What are the cons? The squirls loved these

Review:

Snot sure if this is the same variety I found at a farmers market and grew shoots from, but it looks like it. I grew several varieties of sweet potatoes this year to experiment with. I was particularly interested in trying the leaves as it meant I could munch on them in the asummer while waiting for the fall tuber harvest. Of the varieties I tried, these leaves and stems had a distinct and very good flavor. The orange and purple varieties I tried were more spinach like. These has a cooler flavor. Not sure what the tubors tasted like because the squirls dug them up and ate them before I got the chance. They left the others alone. I think they're on to something...

What are the pros? Productive, healthy plants.

What are the cons? Require lots of space.

Review:

Took a chance and planted slips early. They grew very well and had excellent production. The vines were ridiculously long and took over most of the garden, but worth planting again with that in mind. They are mildly sweet with good texture.
