Sweet Potato Slips


Certified – The Centennial Sweet Potato is probably the most widely known variety recognized in America! This variety has a carrot-like color on the inside with a copper to orange outside skin. Centennial is nicknamed “Baby Bakers” and is ready in about 90 days. The delicious Centennial has been used in many bake-off contests and is a favorite for making sweet potato fries!

PRE-ORDER for 2021 spring delivery. See shipping schedule below.

SOWING: Sweet Potatoes need well-drained and sandy loam soil. Tilling planting area just before planting will help with potato size. Aim for a pH between 6-7.0. You will receive bare-root slips. It is normal for them to be wilted, dry, or pale in color from shipping. If planting must be delayed, wrap the root end of the slips in moist paper towels, keeping the leaves and stems dry. Place upright and keep at room temp., out of direct sunlight and wind. Plant out as soon as danger of frost has passed, and soil temp. is at least 60°F. Plant slips 3-4″ deep, 10-18″ apart in rows 36-60″ apart. Keep well irrigated until plants are established.

HARVEST: Dig roots in fall before first frost. Dig under potatoes and lift up to expose.

STORAGE: Brush soil from roots and cure in a warm, dark, well-ventilated room for 4-7 days to toughen skin.
