Carolina Ruby has a red skin that gives beautiful contrast to a deep orange flesh. Very tasty with good disease resistance. Dark orange flesh when cooked and a very smooth ruby skin. Perhaps the most strikingly red of the red-skinned sweet potatoes. Heart-shaped green leaves with red-purple veins. High level of resistance to Fusarium wilt and soil rot. Some resistance to flea beetle. Moist texture and moderate sweetness. Stores well

Sweet potatoes like warm weather, so make sure all danger of frost has passed before you put your new plants outside. It's best if temperatures have consistently been at least 65 degrees Fahrenheit for several days.

IMPORTANT

You will receive bare-root "slips." Expect them to be wilted, dry, or pale in color from shipping. This is normal. Slips are very hardy and will still grow. If planting must be delayed by a few days, wrap the root end of the slips in moist paper towels, keeping the leaves and stems dry. Place upright and keep at room temperature, out of direct sunlight and wind.

I have started Sweet Potatoes in seven half-whiskey barrel containers.

I got just as much yield from the container as I did from a Raised Bed, but it was so much easier to harvest the  Sweet Potatoes in the container. It would take me over an hour to dig up the Raised Bed and find all of the Okinawan Sweet Potatoes. With the container, all I had to do was to dump the container onto some newspapers and the  Sweet Potatoes would just appear. No digging. No HUNTING.
