2013 Orange Sweet Potato Harvest

This year’s Orange Sweet Potato crop may look very poor, but given that it was crowded out by other varieties it did well. I was not expecting much more than 5 pounds from this variety and that is about what I got. Of all my sweet potato varieties I have grown, this simple orange one is very good and I will most likely be allocating more room to these sweet potatoes next year.

A small harvest, but given the space allocated the vine produced well


  1. They look yummy. I wish I had the climate to grow these...our growing season is too short.

  2. Dear Donna,
    Thanks for your response.
    There are plenty of incredible and fun regular potato varieties out there - in every imaginable color. We southerners have to grow sweet potatoes so we can have something to be excited about. (=
