What are the pros? White skin, purple flesh tasty
What are the cons? red skin, white flesh just OK
Earlier I told how lush vines produced a few small potatoes. Frost was expected so I did a thorough search and found a few large ones, both white skin-purple flesh and red skin-white flesh. I cubed and boiled them, mixed them together with butter and a bit of brown sugar. The purple flesh was firm and delicious, even the dog begged for more. The white flesh would likely work in a spicy stew since they lacked flavor. I learned that my garden has root knot nematodes which would decrease yield. Someone also recommended not letting the vines sprawl, but prune and eat greens to keep the plant in check so that the roots enlarge. Sweet potatoes often winter over here so I will add organic material to the soil and try again in the spring. Also, the purple potato plants and potatoes stain hands and clothing so be careful.
