Description / Vardaman Sweet Potato Slips

Days to Maturity: 95 from direct sow.

Developed by the USDA especially for use in smaller gardens and limited-space plantings, Vardaman is a "bunch" or "bush" variety instead of the traditional trailing vine. The slips offer big yields of superior eating-quality potatoes with golden-yellow skin and deep orange flesh.

Easy to grow and nutritious, sweet potatoes also store well. Set these slips 12 to 15 inches apart in 3-foot rows in a sunny, well-drained spot. After harvest, cure the potatoes in a warm (85 degrees F is preferable) location for 2 weeks, then store at 60 degrees F for 6 to 8 weeks.

A faster way to grow potatoes vs seed.

NOTE: Sweet potato slips are shipped separately from seed orders, at proper planting time for your area.

Customer Reviews

Prettiest vines, wonderful potatoes
Review by Hessianguy
I live in the Memphis, TN metro area. Vardaman is one of the easiest varieties to grow in our area, with beautiful purplish leaves on relatively short vines. The vines are so beautiful that I have grown these in my front yard as an ornamental, but with a tasty bonus also coming in late September. The tubers themselves are tender and flavorful with less stringiness than most other varieties. I highly recommend them.
