Gardeners' Notes:

I planted this plant in a row that I had grown broccoli over the winter. Soil had been treated with wood ash while that crop grew. added lime while preparing the bed for this crop. This plant has gone crazy. every day I see vines trying to take over areas I don't want it to be but I just keep pushing them over trying to train them in one direction. If you plant this make sure it has plenty of room for the vines to spread. It is has not showed any signs of stress, disease, or insects. Hardy plant plant does well in VA.

Extremely productive sweet potato...does produce a good number of oversize potatoes...rampant grower here right on the Gulf Coast of Alabama....Overwintered it in the ground....about 60% of the plants survived even without mulch.....(2 nights in low 20s...many nights in upper 20s-low 30s)...average flavor/sweetness

This cultivar has posed two problems for me. It is somewhat vulnable to Scurf but not as much as Porto Rico and it tends to produce a number of squatty shaped junbo potatoes. Yield are ok, but percentage of bakers is severely reduced. The vines are quite pretty, dark green with some purpling. This cultivar also blooms quite a lot for a sweet potato. Blooms are like a purple white Morning Glory.
