Keeps its unusual colour even when cooked!
Sweet, tender, nutty-flavoured tubers, with the added bonus of delicious edible leaves. And this Japanese, purple-skinned variety doesn't lose its colour when it's cooked! The best for making chips.
Traditionally sweet potatoes have been grown from ‘slips’, but we supply Super Plugs, well-rooted and actively growing, which give far better results! Our new generation of cool-weather-tolerant, fast-maturing varieties can now be grown successfully from plants in even the chilliest parts of the UK. Simply pot and grow on in a frost-free environment until June, then either re-pot or plant into a sunny spot in the garden and you’ll be harvesting your very own sweet potatoes this autumn! Packed full of vitamins and iron, they can be boiled, steamed, baked, mashed or chipped - delicious!
Plant out in May. Harvest in the autumn.
