Product Description

The sweet potatoes that grow on this vine are pale in color and delicious in all kinds of dishes—plus, the foliage is great for adding to mixed salads. The vine grows quickly in the garden or even in large containers, where it will grow masses of charming heart-shaped, pointed leaves. Plant in full sunlight for best results, and keep the soil moist by watering once a week (or more, if growing in a particularly hot, dry climate). In 2020, Treasure Island sweet potatoes won the Direct Gardening Association's Green Thumb Award.
