Can I harvest sweet potatoes earlier if I can’t wait for the foliage to wither?
It is best to wait until the foliage has yellowed and died back naturally to ensure the sweet potatoes have reached their full potential. Early harvesting may result in smaller tubers.
How long can I store harvested sweet potatoes?
Properly cured and stored sweet potatoes can last for several months. Store them in a cool, dry place, away from sunlight.
Can I harvest sweet potatoes in stages as they mature?
Yes, you can selectively harvest sweet potatoes as they mature. However, keep in mind that fully matured sweet potatoes tend to have better flavor and storage potential.
