Sweet Potatoes

Record #:
Sweet potatoes are widely grown in eastern North Carolina in sandy and loamy soil, in air that is hot and humid. The potatoes grow in various sizes and shapes, but only the uniform looking ones are sent to the store. Many of the other ones are either left in the field or donated to organizations that help the needy.
