  • Covington:
  • Covington sweet potatoes offer a creamy and malty, sweet flavor. With its uniform-shape, rose-colored skin and moist, orange flesh, the Covington sweet potato is quickly becoming a fan favorite thanks to its visual appeal and stable shelf life.

  • Purple:
  • The Purple Sweet Potato has a deep purple flesh and skin—hence its namesake. This sweet potato has a slightly milder flavor and is adored in its presentation because of its unique color. Scott Farms recommends this sweet potato baked, steamed, sautéed or even in a dessert.

  • Murasaki:
  • The Murasaki sweet potato is known for its dark red skin and white dry, starchy flesh. Also known as the Japanese sweet potato, the Murasaki variety has a nutty flavor that serves as a great alternative to the white potato.
