Purple-fleshed type that is a Hawaiian 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. Perfect as-is when baked or roasted, needing no further adornment. Deep purple flesh and skins. 3 plants for $10.00

Please consider these terms before ordering live plants:
Most plants will be 3”-7” in height. Plants will ship as available after the first of March to the end of
May. We will try to ship orders to southern zones first. No guaranteed exact delivery dates. Plants may
arrive too early and have to be kept inside until the weather warms. Plants may arrive late, as well.
Due to the sensitive nature of small plants, there is the possibility of a crop failure. If such a situation
occurs, we will do our best to issue you a refund in a timely manner. Last minute losses can occur at
any point in our shipping timeline, and we may have to issue a refund even late in the season. No

orders shipped outside of the USA. No Extra shipping costs; you just pay our regular $3.50. (PRE-ORDER PLANTS WILL SHIP AFTER March 1, 2018)

What are the pros? Giant Purple Potatoes!

What are the cons? Difficult to wait to harvest!

Review:

Grew 3 varieties - Others were jersey yellow and pumpkin yam. They all went in the ground and more than 1/2 our harvest came from the 3x Molokai Purple plants. Several giant potatoes, mid sized, and smaller. Tended to grow vertically rather than fat, but easy to find as they all at least started within about 6 inches of the surface.

Review:

ordered the assortment and LOVE these. grew them in my son's flower bed--watered them with the flowers. I will clip them back more because the runners didn't produce potatoes. But the potatoes are gorgeous and delicious. Will be planting these EVERY year! roasted them for Thanksgiving with some maple syrup and they were out of this world.

Review:

I'm new to growing sweet potatoes and was only expecting to harvest slips for next year, but our tiny, south-facing potato tower turned out 17 lb, some huge. The foliage is gorgeous and strong. I let the vines ramble everywhere outside of the tower fencing, while adding more dirt just once or twice to the tower. The rich deep purple has been so fun to cook with and eat. Like deep royal purple velvet. Makes an exciting sweet potato pie!

Review:

Never grown sweet potatoes. These arrived healthy in March. We started a raised bed garden (gopher & ground squirrel problems) & their bed wasn't ready. So these sat way too long in terra cotta pots on a shady patio. Finally got them into their bed in April. Transition was tough because they had been shaded so long. I thought they were goners. But they came back. By July they'd taken over a 4'x8' bed with beautiful lush greenery. Never bothered by a pest. Watered with a soaker hose in the summer heat. Come mid-November I harvested close to 50lbs from those 3 little plants. Incredible! I was blown away. I was not prepared to "cure" I tried multiple options & found that putting them in an oven with an incandescent light bulb strung in, a pot of water in the bottom (for moisture) & the oven door cracked open for 4 days provided them with the 80? & 80% humidity they need to sweeten up. Then store at 65? for as long as you need. Made heavenly mashed potatoes & fries! Highly recommend!

Review:

So I started out growing these mostly for greens last year in order to get more slips. Which I've done. I now have multiple locations growing these sweet potatoes. I have them growing in pots, livestock feed bags, a wire cage filled with mulch, and the ground. They are growing well in ALL locations. Both in the sun and shade. These have amazing flavor, and if you peel and boil them you can use the boil water for a variety of things. Breads, pour over dog food, soups, etc. Don't toss that water! lol The potatoes themselves are delicious and make an amazing mashed potato with a little cream and salt. I'm ordering a few more varieties this year from Baker Creek since I was so pleased with these. These are growing so much better than my un named wild sweet potatoes that came with our property when we bought it. Those un named kinds don't produce much in the way of potatoes, these from Baker Creek produce a ton!
