Sweet Potato Growing Tips:

— Don’t forget your soil amendments for a great sweet potato crop. Shell’s 3-3-3 worked into soil that’s been loosened to 8-10″ deep will allow your potatoes to pack on the pounds, and pack in the flavor!sweet potato potatoes beauregard spring garden

— You can build a trellis to keep those vines vertical! Use some posts and chicken wire and support the vines with soft ties as they climb.  They make a beautiful decorative backdrop for your garden, and produce ornamental flowers as well. Sweet potatoes are members of the morning glory family.

— Harvest time: minimum 3-4 months, or wait until the vines are yellowing.  You can also wait until the first frost if you have a warm place to allow the sweet potato harvest to cure.

— Curing Sweet Potatoes: spread sweet potatoes out in a shady 80-90 degree F area outside where it’s nice and humid (sounds like Florida in the summer, right?), making sure they aren’t touching each other.  If it’s after the first frost, a heated bathroom makes a good curing area. Curing allows any cuts and bruises from harvest to heal, forces the potato to grow a second skin surrounding the tuber, and makes the flesh of the tuber sweet.

 

**Our grower may have to substitute sweet potato variety at their discretion based on product availability, being that it is a natural product it is susceptible to acts of nature.  We appreciate your understanding.
