Plants grew well and produced large sweet potatoes
We selected the Beauregard Sweet Potatoes for our our community garden based on our online searches, and we were very pleased. When received, the plants appeared spindly and yellowed, but they grew -- and GREW! The vines completely blanketed their beds, and were virtually maintenance free. When we dug them in Fall, we were pleased with the number and size of the harvest! Definitely recommend.
