O'Henry Sweet Potato

Flavor Like No Other

The moment we tasted this one, we were hooked! Golden flesh is smooth and stringless 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. 100 DAYS.
