Developed at Louisiana State University in 1987, this variety may be the world's most popular sweet potato. It is favored for high yields of uniform, reddish-purple potatoes with tasty, deep-orange flesh that keeps well in storage. It seems to have fewer problems with white grubs than some varieties and also resists cracking. Folks in Louisiana are proud of their sweet potatoes and after tasting this one, you'll know why. Make sure that plants get plenty of sun to develop the maximum flavor and sweetness.
Resistant to fusarium wilt and soil rot, but not resistant to nematodes.
