Georgia Jet - YUM
Reviewed By: Gary & Sherry (Peshtigo, WI)
We grew these in a greenhouse we built. Because of the short growing season and they did great! Last yr was our first attempt and this yr we will definitely order again. Our friends were soo jealous and the sweet potatoes were soo good.

Great Yield!
Reviewed By: Deanna (Ithaca, NY)
My plants did great. I warmed the soil with black plastic before they arrived last year and they thrived. I was careful not to overwater them once they were established. I had a great yield and they lasted into April in the house.

Georgia we are not.
Reviewed By: Hannah (Spokane, WA)
So sad. I love sweet potatoes and this one got great reviews. I was unable to pull anything off these. This plant apparently likes southern states only.

Strong Survivors
Reviewed By: Matt (Uehling, Nebraska)
This was my first time growing sweet potatoes. Was a little nervous. Actually forgot they were coming, and didn't allow much room in my garden. There seemed to be a problem with my post office lady, and she didn't let me knowI had LIVE plants waiting for me. After 1 week in the post office, I finally recieved them. Was able to salvage 3 plants. Nursed them to life in my garden, did everything I could, and they sprang up to life. I was surpirsed how much they vine out ( again, my first expierence with sweet potatoes). I covered them up when we were to get frost, and finally dug them up after a frost killed them off. I was AMAZED!! I had several potatoes that were just huge! Very satisfied with the amount we got after all the stress the plants had been through! Great job Gurney's! We will be planting these again next year,ON TIME !! Can't wait to see what we get next harvest!

Amazing!
Reviewed By: Laura (Las Vegas, Nevada)
These are fantastic sweet potatoes! We were amazed at the beauty of the vines, even in the desert heat they were green and gorgeous! The number of sweet potatoes we harvest was more than we could have ever imagined and so delicious! Sweet Potatoes are my family's favorite thing to grow in our garden. It is a very easy and satisfying addition to our garden. Can't wait to grow more next year!

Prize winner every year
Reviewed By: Steven Wilson (Warner Robins, GA)
I have ordered your Georgia Jets for many years. They consistently produce large crops here in Middle Georgia. Every year, I enter my sweet potatoes in the Georgia National Fair, and walk away with another blue ribbon. One year, my potatoes disappeared before I could pick up my prize. Even someone in the crowd knew how good they were. And, they make the best sweet potato casserole. Thanks again.
