Sweet Potato Varieties starting with K - Q

(225 varieties to choose from)

 Please note all photos were taken in April and the sweet potatoes were dug in early October. This is to give an indication of the storage capabilities of each variety. All of our written descriptions are made from freshly dug roots in October and as the roots age colors change on many. The skin surfaces become duller and the flesh colors yellow in white varieties.  All of these photos  were taken on the top of a freezer  underneath grow lights in the basement where the roots are stored. We are still working  with the  program as some appear fine on the view screen and  then do not show up online the same way.

We are very sorry for all of the unavailable varieties. This summer we lost our long time dog Snickers  as he passed on at almost 16years old. He would follow me all summer row by row and he hated voles and other rodents and would catch them all summer. Add to that we also lost our fuzzy long haired black cat who by no means was every friendly but literally patrolled the 10 acres of crops near our house. In -20 weather he would still try to catch any rodents in the  garden areas that he could find. The loss of both of these animals meant the voles reproduced at a great rate and some areas were hit very hard . I dug one 250 foot row and got only 6 roots and some areas it looked more like an interstate highway system of tunnels. I did not get a backup planting in the backfield like usual and it hurt. I learned my lesson.  We will try harder for next season to get all back in good number.
