This much sought after Japanese sweet potato has amethyst skin and pearly flesh that’s creamy, sweet and nutty flavoured. So different from ordinary sweet potatoes, Murasaki has drier, more subtly flavoured flesh that begs to be roasted and topped simply with butter or miso for a sumptuous dish. Plants are disease resistant. Longer season variety (120 days)
Sweetpotatoes are vegetatively propagated. Our slips will be bare-root with approximately 4-6″ in stem length. Leaves may be damaged during handling and shipping, but slips will quickly recover if roots are placed in water with light and warmth.
Ordering will become available on March 27th, 2018. Orders will be filled by a first come, first serve basis. Full payment is required to reserve your order.
Slips will be available for pickup and shipping in late May to early June, dependent on the weather.
