A vining type with rose colored skin, orange flesh. (105 day) Resistamt to Fusarium, root knot nematodes, and soil rot. Developed by sweetpotato breeders Dr. Craig Yencho and Kenneth Pecota, associate professor and researcher, respectively, in the Department of Horticultural Science in the North Carolina State University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and released, or made available to growers, in 2005. A heavy yielding variety. I prefer a slimmer shape, these are almost round and tend to run to jumbo size. One of the few that bloom profusely, would make a good ornamental.
