O' Henry Sweet Potatoes

FREE $25 Off Any Order Of $50 Or More!
 

Flavor Like No Other

The moment we tasted this one, we were hooked! Golden flesh is smooth and string less with the rich flavor of nuts and honey. Sweet and aromatic, O'Henry is slightly drier than other sweet potatoes and bakes up perfectly. High-yielding plants produce huge, cream colored tubers in a compact cluster underneath the plant for easy digging. Plants. 100 DAYS.
Sweet Potatoes are not available in CA.

Zones: 3 - 9 annual.

From skeptical to satisfied
Reviewed By: Henry (Rosman, North Carolina)
My wife convinced me to order this variety because my name is Henry. When they arrived they were all bunched together and not only looked dead but smelled rotten. i thought that this couldn't be right but the directions indicated that this was normal. I soaked them in a vase of water for a day and a half and then planted them just before a rain. They TOOK OFF! They covered a huge section of my garden and then started running way down the hill. It was like english ivy on steroids. Then one day all the leaves died and so I decided to check out the harvest. I got almost 3 bushels of plump, and tasty sweet potatoes. we will be ordering them again. They are mild and tan in color. We both really like this variety.

Great for baking
Reviewed By: Kay H (Clinton Twp, MI)
I was very pleased with these sweet potatoes; I thought perhaps they might be too bland, but thought my children would prefer them to the heavier taste of regular sweet potatoes. They didn't -- but I did! These made excellent pies, the delicate flavor lending itself to the addition of chocolate and carmel. They would make an excellent layered pecan pie.
