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.
