O'Henry Sweet Potato

A Flavor Like No Other

Garden Talk
Listen to why this is Niles' favorite.
The moment we tasted O'Henry, we were hooked! The creamy gold flesh is smooth and stringless. The flavor is lighter and more delicate than other sweet potatoes and has hints of honey and nuts. The sweet, aromatic tubers are also slightly drier than other sweet potatoes making them perfect for baking. The plants are 12 in. tall when mature and produce high yields of huge tan-skinned tubers that grow as a compact cluster underneath the plant, making them extremely easy to dig out. O'Henry does well in full sun, at planting sites that are rich in organic matter and have well-drained soil. 100 DAYS. Zones 3-9.
I'm gardening elsewhere.
