A delicious old-fashioned sweet pototao that has golden-red skin and moist, flavorful flesh that is bright orange in color. The short bush-like vines produce good sized “clusters” of these earthly jewels. Easy to dig and grows well in our gardens. This variety was common for about 75 years and the first known mention was in 1868, but in modern times it has disappeared. So we are happy to bring it back into circulation and back to America’s dinner tables. A tasty treat that is part of our country’s history, although it may have been introduced here from Brazil. Very rare and hard to find!

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? Easy to grow in the Deep South

What are the cons? None at all

Review:

I ordered enough plants to grow in a 25ft long row 2ft apart. The plants arrived alittle stressed from the mail journey but all the plants were healthy and survived. I quickly potted the plants in loose seed starter soil and placed in the sun on the warm days and kept inside at night. They slowly started to grow as the days got warmer then I transplanted them into the garden where they grew very nicely into full mounds that stretched out to about 3 ft. lengths. The plants grew in the ground for about 4 months requiring regular watering like the my Beauregard sweet potatoes. When I dug them up they were the size of large soft balls, few where long shaped but most looked like a small pumpkin. They are not heavy producers but do provide a nice amount of potatoes per plant. They have kept very well inside the house in a cool room all fall and winter. Now they are starting to sprout and I will certainly grow more this spring. I highly recommend them for the southern states.

What are the pros? Low maintenance

What are the cons? Limited production

Review:

Had a cool, wet spring. Had to keep plants in pots for almost two months after they arrived. Lost one of the three I ordered at this point. Finally the soil warmed up enough, planted the remaining two. Cold, wet snap. Down to one plant by the time it really got warm. That plant did great, grew all summer. I harvested mid-October, the last day before our first frost of the year. Got enough for one family dinner - eight people. For the money, this is not a good bet for 5,800 foot elevation on the edge of the Rockies - the season is just too short. That said, they were very moist, tasty, better than we can buy locally.

What are the pros? Beautiful, fat potatoes!

What are the cons? Deep digging

Review:

Compared these to the Molokai purple and the Jersey Yellow. Vigorous plants but produced potatoes much deeper than I wanted to dig/expected - Roots ended about 1.5-2 ft deep whereas the purple and yellow ended about 2-12 inches deep. Second best yield of the three types, but if I hadn't have kept digging, I would have thought there were very few potatoes! About 1/3 of yield within first 6 inches, and the rest deeper. I bet these get big if they are put in the ground earlier!

Review:

I grew sweet potatoes in Iowa! I put 6 slips in a rasised bed spaced about 2 ft apart, 5 slips survived. Planted Memorial Day weekend and harvested Labor Day weekend. I would have waited but it is suppose to get down in the 40s at night and I need to ckear a bed for garlic. Good sized ones for sure, cant wait for them to cure.

Review:

I live in a very hot climate. Sometimes dry (drought) hot but usually humid (very heavy air) hot. I got these plants and they were a little stressed from the trip. They were yellow but came back easily. Then they just sat there. I have them in containers because often it stays raining every day for a week or so and usually rots potatoes and softer root veggies. Well as I said they just sat there. I moved them to shade and they continued to sit there. Then I noticed they were turning back yellow so back to the sun. This time they turned a very pretty dusty rose and green shade but just sat there. So, I moved them again to a area that they get sun up until around 1-2 pm. Finally they are happy and starting to take off. Luckily here we often don't start getting to cold for most crops until November or later so hopefully I should be okay.
