Korean or Japanese Sweet Potato
Hi all, Happy New Year! I was thinking about making changes to my Sweet Potato patch this year, namely trying a different variety. I've been growing Vardeman because of space considerations, but may have more room this summer (keep you fingers crossed for me!). There's this one sweet potato I've eaten that I really like a lot, but I'm not sure what it is called. It's red skinned, with creamy white flesh that cooks to have a yellow tint, dry, sweet and "clean" tasting (and is phenomenal oven roasted in chunks). I can buy it at our local Asian market as "Korean Sweet Potato" and I've seen mention of a "Korean Purple" when doing a search on the web, but the description doesn't quite sound right. I've also seen a "Japanese Sweet Potato" that looks and sounds more or less right. So, does anybody know anything about these types? Like, is either of the two varieties I found on the internet the one I'm buying at market, how big do these vines get, how well do they store, etc.? Thanks so much!
