These don't just look cool, they taste great too!
Reviewed By: Jill (FORT BRANCH, IN)
We love sweet potatoes in general, but bought these too for their unique color. The taste was phenomenal! In fact many in my family preferred these over the traditional orange flesh sweet potatoes. Produced just as well too and the size was perfect for baking!
