Purple sweet potatoe slips

TealGardenFebruary 18, 2012

Hello all,

Spring is almost around the corner and I cannot wait to put all my plants outside :) Over the winter I successfully sprouted purple sweet potatoes and now it's doing a bit too well. I had to snip some slips and instead of throwing them away I decided to put them in water (already rooting). Theses plants do so well and are so easy to grow. Since spring is almost here I was wondering if anyone else loves growing edible plants. Berries, fruits,tubers etc....I'd really love to partner up with someone and be in a "trade buddy" relationship. Hopefully that wasn't too corny. If you LOVE sending things (out) just as much as (receiving) packages in the mail that would be you! Let's be trade buddies and surprise the heck out of each other once in a while :) I am in zone 7

A picture (not mine) of the exact purple sweet potatoe I have to offer. Same skin and flesh.

This is the mother plant I have and it's doing so well.

Are these the edible kind. I love edible landscaping, and have wanting to try sweet potatoes

Jlee, these are very edible and make great houseplants as well.

I bought white skin purple fleshed sweet potatoes from the flea market and tried to grow but failed 2 years in a row.
Do you still trade purple sweet potatoes? Thx
