I'm in north central Indiana. I can't find a place to buy Japanese Sweet Potato (satsumaimo) so I would like to buy some seed potatoes IF they can be grown in this area. Any ideas where I can find some? thanks!

Sand Hill Preservation lists Japanese sweet potato.

oop-slips not seeds. LOL. Shows how much I know about growing sweet potatoes. Thanks for the link! The sweet potatoes I've always had are purple with yellow flesh but I will probably give these a try too.

Gale, I don't know if you ever found your sweet potato slips, but if you want some in spring of '06, I can try to send you some once the weather breaks. The oriental markets here regularly carry a sweet potato with reddish-purple skin and a pale yellow flesh when cooked, and they sprout just as well as any other sweet potato. According to my husband, those are the proper kind to use for Kuri Kinton at New Year's - I don't usually do other Japanese recipes with sweet potatoes.
