8600 Beauregard sweet potato slips
Beauregard has become the "grower's choice" for commercial sweet potato cultivation due to uniform tubers and high yields. The skin is coppery red and the flesh is orange. Excellent flavour.
Like all culinary sweet potatoes, the leaves of Beauregard are edible and can be used in place of spinach, kale, chard and various Asian greens. They are very nutritious... and may just be the next big thing (of course they have been popular forever in Asian cooking!). Sweet potato greens can be wilted in a skillet (similar to other greens), or stir-fried with other ingredients.
Sweet potatoes are ground-hugging vines.
