Heirloom sweet potatoes in California
Somebody posted earlier asking about buying heirloom sweet potatoes in California. And I recently bought some Japanese "Okinawa" sweet potato plants (An absolutely delicious purple sweet potato) from Steve Spangler at "Exotica rare fruit nursery" in Vista Calironia.
I think that sweet potatoes can get a leaf curf disease. And California creates such a hassle and charges so much for inspections that it's not worth it for the growers to ship into California...
People typically 'slip' their own sweet potatoes. I've had the directions e-mailed to me and I can forward them on if anybody is interested.
