Time to harvest monster purple Okanowan sweet potato

 Wow, I had no clue the Okinawan purple sweet potatoes were going to be this big. They are monster size. If you take a look at the video you can see them harvested. I thought the smaller ones were Malaki. But they too are Okinawan. They were developed later than the big ones. The tubers are more than 18 inches from the plant, so you have to hunt them down. I found one 4 feet away from the plant in the back yard. It was like it was looking for the perfect place to grow. It is best to plant these in loose soil. So, they will not break at harvest time.

Harvesting Malaki Purple Hawaiian sweet potatoes

I am so happy with my harvest of sweet potatoes this year. I bought both Malaki and Okinawa purple sweet potato slips. And they were worth every penny. I have 2 posts showing the results of there harvest. I hope you enjoy the videos and photos. Feel free to ask questions.  
The malaki sweet potatoes are amazing size. They seem to grow right under the plant. If you tale a look at the video, you will see it had some runners grow away from the plant. But, they were not as big. You have to be careful harvesting them. They break easy.
