Vardaman Sweet Potato

Vardaman sweet potatoes were easy to grow, beautiful to look at, and scrumptious to eat. I produced several pounds of sweet potatoes from just a few plants. I probably would have had many more pounds if the voles hadn't liked them as much as they did. By the way, I grew these sweet potatoes in heavy, clay soil with a little compost mixed in, so you can probably grow them any where. GrowJoy is a great company to work with; I have absolutely no complaints.
