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 18th, 2020. Orders will be filled by a first-come, first-serve basis. Full payment is required to reserve your order.

Slips will be available for pick up and shipping in late May to early June, dependent on the weather.
