Growing Sweet Potatoes

Nutritious and high-producing, sweet potatoes are a rewarding root crop to grow.

Okinawa Purple Sweet Potatoes are now beloved in Hawaii, as well as their homeland, Okinawa, Japan. This variety is believed to have been grown for over 400 years, coloring generations of Japanese cakes, ice cream and all sorts of food. A favorite at Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, and one of their best selling items in 2015.
