JERSEY YELLOW Sweet Potato Plants/Slips -
- Days to Maturity: 100 days
- Skin Color: Cream
- Flesh Texture: Light, Moist
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. If planting must be delayed by a week or more, loosely plant the slips in sterile potting soil and keep soil moist; keep indoors or in a greenhouse. Gently lift out and separate slips when ready to plant.
This variety is an "old-fashioned" sweet potato with a golden yellow skin at harvest time which fades to buff or tan after storage. The flesh color ranges from creamy white to bright yellow with an occasional pink variegation. It has a dry, meaty flesh that is exceptionally sweet and creamy and retains its form when baked. Delicious simply steamed in a pot of rice.
Solid performer and super consistent, met expectations for appearance, flavor, and yield. "We have consistently had VERY GOOD appearance, flavor, and yield from the Covingtons we source from you. The taters are beautifully shaped and sized with few jumbos, are easy to harvest, store well, and are delicious.
Carefully fill the hole with dirt so that you don't bruise the new plant. Sweet potatoes don't like to be bruised or bumped around too much. When you have completely covered it with soil, gently press the plant and surrounding dirt to set the plant and to remove any remaining air pockets. Continue the same way until all of your slips are planted.
We purchased 5 slips through Amazon back in July 2020. When they arrived, they all looked pretty wilted and appeared dead. We planted them anyway according to the instructions that came with them in a 4'x4' raised bed. We just pulled our second harvest out of that bed (20lb. of sweet potatoes in all), and have new slips started to re-plant as soon as the roots get fully developed. After reading all of the negative reviews, we were skeptical that we would get anything to grow, let alone get any results. The vines that escaped the raised bed now cover the entire yard and we have sweet potatoes growing everywhere.
Couldn't be happier with the results.
14 days ago you fulfiled the order but ,I have not recieved them yet. My hopes for the slip is dim at this time.
Poor customer services.

All the slips were dead when I received them. I have sent you 3 emails.I sent the first email on the day I received the slips. I even included a picture, but I have not heard anything from you. I
I got 18 slip instead of 6! I planted them and see no signs of life yet. Some didn’t have leaves so I don’t think they will make !
