Heavy yielding, vine type, developed at Louisiana State University. Copper skin, moderately deep orange flesh, and consistent in shape. Tolerant to soil pox and does not crack open. Out yields all other sweet potatoes. 90-100 days.
Plants grow best in a sandy loam soil and will thrive with minimal rainfall. Plant in rows that are 3' apart and 8-10" high. Space plants 10-18" apart and 3-4" deep. We are offering five varieties which will be shipped direct to you from the grower. April, May and early June are shipping months. Plants arrive with growing directions and some tasty recipes. Our grower suggests gardeners in Northern states use black plastic mulch, covering bedded rows 2-3 weeks before plants arrive, to warm the soil and aid growth.
