Be careful to avoid (ie cut off) any rot or fungus infected sweet potato. When stressed the tuber is know to produce toxins

Sweet Potato

Sweet potatoes try to develop tubers as soon as they start growing in soil. In the very infertile, sandy, sometimes saline soils of Sydney's Eastern Suburbs, it is a perennial and produces an average sized tuber every 2 months.

My sweet potato gets wiped out by frost, then just resprouts. Have the Beauregard variety, it is a perennial ground cover. The leaves are excellent in stir fries as well!

Sweet Potato

Its botanical name is Ipomoea batatas - not "batatus" and not "batters"! Curry the tuber with onion, ground coriander, little cumin, ginger

Sweet Potato

Low Groundcover : Plant as an edible groundcover between and under fruit/ nut trees and Arrowroot to make maximum use of sunlight.This is called 'Stacking'.So the lowest is Sweet Potato then higher up is the Arrowroot then higher up is the fruit tree .
