I'm interested in your Georgia sweet potato are they perinial? If not how to store the bare root for next year?
Tarcelita W on May 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are not perennial in my area (northern Iowa) as our winters are very cold. They are in very warm climates. A friend of my dad here places cuttings of the ends of the potatoes suspended in water to root them starting around February and then plants them in May. I think he pokes toothpicks in to make little spokes to suspend the cut edge on the edge of a container with just the end of the potato in the water. I just buy new plants in the spring.

Clifford S on Mar 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It depends greatly on location, soil, and growing season, but on average you can expect 4-5 large tubers from each plant or as many as 8-10 decently sized tubers per plant. Hopefully others will chime in with their personal experience.

First time growing sweet potatoes
This was my first time to grow sweet potatoes. We tried them in a raised bed and the grew very well. I was disappointed in the potato itself but that was probably our fault. Apparently something was eating on them in the ground because when we cut them open, they were full of black streaks. Only a few were able to bake whole. Most of them had to be cut up and boiled. I don't think I will grow them again.
