This is the sweetpotato of my youth. I find it the most delicious of all sweetpotatoes that I have grown.

My father planted Nancy Hall and Porto Rico exclusively in the 30's, 40's and 50's. In the 60's and 70's I got him to try other cultivars. He dropped the Nancy Halls but stuck with Porto Rico until his death. Nancy Hall grew well in piedmont Virginia. It has a nice shape and is yellow skinned and yellow fleshed. It is somewhat moist, but flavor is too reminiscent of a pumpkin to suit me.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
