Riassunto: The sweet potato (also spelled 'sweetpotato') is an eccentric vegetable requiring different treatment than any other root crop grown by home gardeners. Half of this book deals with growing, curing and storing the sweet potato. The rest is a leisurely tour through the history, science and lore of the sweet potato.

Dall'autore: The sweet potato demands that it be treated differently than any other garden vegetable. But if you are willing to be accommodating, sweet potatoes are not difficult to grow. After harvest, if you do right by them, they maintain superb quality in storage for eight months to a year. And despite their tropical origin, sweet potatoes can be grown just about anywhere that one can ripen tomatoes. This book tells you what you need to know to grow a year's supply of the sweetest, tastiest and most nutritious root crop.

Some vegetables taste the same whether you buy them or grow your own (I am unable to tell the difference between cauliflower from the supermarket and from my own garden). There are many vegetables, however, that are clearly superior when grown in the home garden. The reasons for this tend to be specific to the vegetable: tomato varieties which are best for flavour are not grown commercially; cantaloupes have to be vine ripened for melting fruity flavour; harvest timing is critical for peas; minumum time from the garden to the table is very important for corn and for new potatoes; sweet potatoes are mistreated by the retail system.

Home gardeners who grow their own sweet potatoes have it within their power to do right everything that the professionals are currently doing wrong. The difference this makes in quality and flavour is amazing.
