In 2014 we grew Georgia jets, we got good results for our first year given the learning curve..
Once again my local garden group is doing a bulk order in of Sweet Potato slips, the company that we worked with last year is offering a number of new slips this year.
So keeping with the tried and got a basic understanding I ordered in twenty five of the Georgia Jets, they are the highest recommended for my area and they have a wonderful deep orange flesh.
Then I decided to play a little bit and ordered in ten of the Cuban Red Slips..
This is a red on the outside and white flesh on the inside, but with a sweet potato taste. They can be a touch trickier to grow, and if we end up with a milder summer, I might not really get much of a crop but like all gardeners, its a gamble
Somehow I am now also getting 25 purple slips now.
A combo of hard work, and luck 🙂
