SWEET POTATO SLIPS ARE AVAILABLE FOR SALE FOR THE 2021 SEASON - Shipping date is weather dependent but will likely take place in late May, 2021. Thank you for your support.
Sweet potatoes are a hearty, healthy, delicious southern specialty. With so many uses in the kitchen, they are sure to be a hit at harvest time. Sweet Potatoes are a great item for CSA growers to consider using in their fall and winter boxes. When cured sufficiently, they can store up to 12 months in the right environment. We have customers tell us that they eat sweet potatoes all year long. The best plants start with the best slips.
We offer five varieties of Certified Organic Sweet Potato Slips and six varieties that are grown conventionally. Our Certified Organic Covington, Orleans, Burgundy, and Murasaki slips are G2, from micro-propagated, virus-indexed mother plants. This makes them very 'clean' (genetically) and very productive! Our conventionally grown varieties include Covington, Murasaki, Garnet, Bonita, Evangeline and Beauregard.
Shipping notes: - We recommend shipping via UPS 2 Day Air to guarantee that your slips will arrive in great condition. - We will target a ship date for the week of May 31, 2021 this season. All slip shipments outside of North Carolina will be accompanied by a Phytosanitary Certificate issued by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture. We are not permitted to ship to CA or LA due to restrictions on plant material entering those states.
