Sweet Potatoes

(225 varieties to choose from, well before the Derecho of 2020, now we are struggling to recover)

 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. On August 9,2020  we tilled between the rows in anticipation of an upcoming rain storm. As we plant on black plastic and our soil is very sandy it makes planning for tillage before a rain a necessity to make the best use of the moisture. Our soil is quirky and if not disturbed after a rain will actually hold the moisture down a few inches very well but if tilled after a rain will wick out the moisture quickly. On August 10 we had a Derecho or land hurricane that gave us 100 mph winds for close to an hour and the devastation was great. We were blessed with no lost buildings or livestock but many all across the state lost homes, buildings and had near total devastation. Our worst damage was the areas where I tilled the day before and the loose sand was picked up by the wind and ripped the plastic out of the ground and literally rolled the plants up like you would roll up a soft shell taco . We lost many sweet potatoes and tomatoes and peppers.  Where we have a supply of sweet potatoes they were planted in another section that had not been tilled and they did very well. We will work overtime to try to get things all back to normal for 2022. We sure hope we do not totally lose any varieties.

The above statement was written for 2021 listings. We were hopeful some of the small roots we did obtain from the  storm damaged plants would  survive but in many cases they simply did not produce sprouts in 2021 and what at first appeared to be a loss of many varieties turned out  to be even greater when others did not sprout. We are hopeful some of the lost ones are still in someones hands and we can get them back.

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO ORDER THE ASSORTMENTS THEY ARE FOUND  IN THE ORDERING INFORMATION SECTION. PLEASE RESPECT THE MAXIMUM SLIPS AVAILABLE FOR THIS YEAR.

Georgia Jet.jpg

Georgia Jet

Georgia Jet-  Early. Vining, normal leaf, pink-/red skin, orange flesh, above average yield.  While this continues to be a popular variety, I find it to be one of the least desirable ones to grow. Yes, it is early. Yes, it gets big, but it cooks up mushy  It doesn’t have the flavor or resistance to cracking that some of the other varieties we carry have. We sincerely hope that you will try some of the more flavorful heirlooms that we offer. While you may not get an 8 to 10 pound “whopper”, you’re going to get something that will tantalize your taste buds with the heirlooms. We have been working with a new clone of this from Duck Creek Farms and it  has much better crack resistance. In 2017 we planted our crop July 6 and harvested in early October with over 99% usable sized crack free roots. We hope to continue to select for top quality  roots. 2018 also proved to see this selection rise in favorability. 2019 showed continued good quality crack free roots.
