The sweet potato is a root vegetable with a sweet flavour. It can be round, long or even spindle-shaped and is mostly pointed at the ends. The colour of the skin ranges from white through orange to purple and brown.

Cultivation & harvest
Since the sweet potato found its origins in Central America, it requires a warm and protected location for cultivation. A sandy and nutrient-rich soil is ideal for this.
The root vegetable is particularly well suited for preparing soups, bakes and as an accompaniment.
Sweet potatoes should be stored in a cool, dark place in the same way as potatoes.
