purple skin, white flesh(120 days) Japanese-type sweet potato requires a longer season to mature; it may pose a challenge to northern growers, but the eating quality is unbeatable. Rich nutty flavor and high sugar content. A shoo-in for our southern customers. If you’re one of those Yankee gardeners who can’t back down from a dare (who says you can’t grow figs and artichokes in Maine?), this is the sweet for you. Well worth the extra effort. ②
