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.
