Looking for a Fun to grow unique potato for your garden?

Sweet potato plants serve double duty. First, in the garden sweet potato vines are beautiful. They cascade from containers or serve an effective ground cover. Secondly, and most importantly they provide nutritious and delicious tuber roots to enjoy as the weather cools

You will receive 1 potato OR 2 small that will produce up to 10-20 "slips" or sprouts. Each slip/sprout is 1 plant.

* Your potato May or May not be forming slips when it arrives

How to produce slips:
Once you receive your seed potato you will cut it in half. Using toothpicks, submerge half in a jar of water. Place in warm sunny location and in a few weeks your potato seed will be covered in leafy slips/sprouts.

Comes with full planting instructions
