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)

Review:

This is my first year growing sweet potatoes. From three slips planted in mid-May we harvested 13.7# of sweet potatoes by September 9th (largest individual potato was 886g). The planting position got about 7-8 hours of direct sun, and was very protected from any wind. When the slips came in April it was too cold to plant them out so we started them in compostable pots indoors under grow lights. I would probably do this again, regardless of weather, as it helped the little slips to recover from the mail and go through our standard indoor>cold frame>planted out progression. We had an incredibly dry summer but the plants never seemed to suffer and coped well with deep watering 3x weekly. The vines themselves were enormous. They were planted in a 36 sq ft bed and completed outgrew it. When roasted their texture was very dense compared to sweet potatoes I've gotten from the store and the flavor less sweet and more complex. *Very* delicious and eye catching on the plate!

What are the pros? Vigorous and easy to propagate

What are the cons? Largest roots a bit tough

Review:

This will be my third year growing this variety in Phoenix. We are generally frost free from late March to late November. The first year I did not order them until June, but they did very well. Last year was not a great year for sweet potatoes in my garden but these did better than the other varieties. We had a warm winter so I planted out some slips in early March, and once again these survived the best of any variety. I have no idea why a Hawaiian variety would do well in the desert, but they do. One way I propagate is to cut the ends of vines at harvest time and put them in water, then plant them in trays and wait for spring. Many varieties do not like sitting in stagnant water waiting for spring, but these slips have a will to survive and rarely fail. The taste is good and the color is spectacular. We make Phoenix Suns sweet potato casserole from the orange and purple. The only negative is that if you get a really big root, it can be a little tough and woody.

Review:

These plants arrived in perfect condition. I sat them in shallow water for 2 weeks until I had time to plant them. I am absolutely shocked at how much vinage and potato came from these 3 slips! My only regret is thatg I didn't order more earlier this year and you are all out now. ?

Review:

I live in zone 4B so sweet potatoes are not really the best for this climate but I just had to try. I grew them in my hoop house so the ground would warm faster and they could grow longer. The deep purple color of the potato, the sturdy vines (bug tolerant here for sure), the flavor of the potatoes.... These are a few of my favorite things! I'm planting again in 2018 and I'll take steps to warm the ground faster this year. I love them!
