Keeps its unusual colour even when cooked!

Even more versatile than potatoes, plus it’s purple, and doesn’t lose its unusual colour when it’s cooked!

Tubers can be grated raw into coleslaws and the leaves when cooked have a spinach like flavour. Plant out in May, harvest in autumn. Latin Name:  Ipomoea batatas.

Traditionally sweet potatoes have been grown from ‘slips’, but quality can be poor and results disappointing. At Suttons we have been working to supply a better product, and hence the introduction of Super Plugs, produced on our nursery from virus-free stock. Well-rooted and actively growing, they are a significant improvement on traditional ‘slips’. Simply pot and grow on in a frost-free environment until June, then either re-pot or plant into the garden and you should be harvesting your very own sweet potatoes next autumn!

James' says - 'Amazingly versatile and increasingly popular, the new varieties of sweet potato can be easily grown in the UK and produce a crop of sweet tender tubers with the added bonus of delicious edible leaves!'
