Sweet Potato O'Henry

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

NEW! Flavor like no other

100 days. Even if you've never been a fan of sweet potatoes before—you have to try O'Henry. Unique flavor is reminiscent of nuts and honey, not at all heavy and cloying. Your mouth will be watering before you even get it out of the oven—while baking it fills your kitchen with the aroma of sweet, warm honey. Golden flesh is string less and slightly drier than traditional sweet potatoes. Large tubers grow in a compact cluster beneath the plant, making harvesting a cinch—no more accidentally slicing into that giant prize tuber with your spade!

Zones: 3 - 9 annual.
