Sweet Potato - Evangeline x5 Plants

  • Catalogue Code 1080-5763
  • Pack Contents: 5x Plants

Regarded as a "really sweet” potato, this classic orange root is twice as sweet as other varieties on account of its high sucrose content. It shows high resistance to nematode damage too.

Sweet potatoes are the tubers of attractive climbing or spreading plant Ipomaea batatas with ornamental heart-shaped leaves and ‘morning-glory’ trumpet flowers, so ideal for decorating the vegetable plot while waiting for ample harvests.

Recent breeding means there’s more than one type of sweet potato available for home-growers, all varieties with their individual characteristics but all equally as nutritious. Try for yourself.

Just grow them on in a sunny position – they’re half hardy so really appreciate the sun and high humidity levels to thrive.

These young plants have been grown by our experts and delivered to you with a healthy network of roots, ready for you to plant on into containers.

 

Requires support, half-hardy annual, disease resistant

 

Features

  • Good in containers and pots
  • Will flower well in full sun
