Sweet Potato, Okinawan Purple (3 Plants, Ships March-June)

Descended from the first sweet potatoes to reach Japan prior to 1500. The purple coloration is connected with the high anthocyanin content. This one is documented to contain more of the potent antioxidant than even blueberries! Ivory-colored skin, brilliant purple flesh. Our favorite, but it takes a long season. Recommended for Zone 6b or warmer. 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, 2017)

What are the pros? Pretty on the inside

What are the cons? Avoid - Terrible Yields

Review:

For years we have successfully grown GA Jet & Beauregard sweet potatoes here in Zone 8A. We decided to give these a try, thankfully on a limited basis - just 3 plants. We planted the healthy slips we received in one of our 4x16 ft raised beds along with GA Jets. We got an average of 7.5 pounds of sweet potatoes per GA jet plant and only a dismal & pathetic 2/3 of a pound per plant from the Okinawan's. To make matters worse, these 3 plants generated as many runners of leaves as the 13 GA Jet plants combined so their leaves probably reduced our GA Jet yield (94 pounds of GA jets). Last but not least, they don't grow in a nice clump under the plant like normal sweet potatoes, they grow off of the root runners - so we had to dig up the entire section around them to find the few that we got. Thankfully we have another bed of 100% Beauregard's to harvest and the ground has swelled up in huge mounds around each plant. I'm expecting around 150 pounds from that bed.

Review:

I ordered Okinawa sweet potato last year. they were doing really well unfortunately they did not give me any potatoes at all. I called this company and this year they replaced me with no questions asked. This is very good nursery to deal with. I certainly will order from them again

What are the pros? Great yield, delicous

What are the cons? Space hog (tubers foliage)

Review:

Wasn't so sure about this variety for my location (Santa Cruz, CA) after reading about difficulty with yields and requiring a long hot season. Ended up being by far the most productive variety out of 7 I grew last summer in a crowded 4' x 8' raised bed. I only had one slip, planted around early June I think. Bed was covered with clear plastic starting a few weeks prior. Fairly sunny spot, but shade in the late afternoon. Harvested around mid November. Okinawan Purple dominated the box and produced way more foliage (I ate all of it during harvesting -- delicious!) than any of the other plants. I found tubers scattered throughout the box up to several feet away from the planting location, including mixed together with and beneath the other sweet potato plants. The yield from this one plant was about 10 lbs! They were large tubers and delicious to boot (cured at ~85 F for a week or so).

What are the pros? Well rooted

What are the cons? Coiled roots

Review:

Slips arrived intact with lots of circling roots. It wasn't a big deal uncoiling the roots. Should take off better than lesser established roots.

What are the pros? easy to grow. Huge potatoes

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is a great tasting sweet potato. I planted in spring and harvested huge sweet potatoes. My largest weighed in at 7.2 lbs. I harvested some leaves to eat as greens in the spring and summer. Very easy to grow and lots of potatoes. They taste like chestnuts. I've planted these for the last three years and have not been disappointed.
