Sweet Potato Cultivation


How is everyone doing on sweet potatoes for 2020?


There are a few varieties of sweet potatoes that are worth extra effort to try sometime in your life. One of them is the Okinawan Purple. The flavor is unique and hard to describe. If you enjoy sweet potato pie, try it made with Okinawan Purple.

Another that is worth digging around and finding is Mahon which is sometimes sold as Bradshaw. It is a good producing orange sweet potato with exceptionally good flavor.

While I don’t grow them now, in the past I grew Georgia Jet. They can mature in short season areas.


Sweet Potatoes in the ground and in pots. Store bought and Nancy Hall. The Nancy Hall seemed to take off faster, but it is early yet.


I ordered skips this year from Sand Hill. I don’t expect to see them before 6/10.
