Varieties

Covington

This sweet potato was developed at NC State and released to growers in 2005. It accounts for 20% of potatoes grown nationwide and is known for it superior storage life and exceptional quality. The 'Covington' is a beautiful, slightly larger sweet potato that tends to be more uniform in shape and size than the 'Beauregard'. The flavor of baked Covingtons typically outshines the competition and has been rated very well by standardized and informal taste panels

Orleans

Developed by the Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station in 2005, the Orleans is a consistent hitter. This orange-fleshed, light rose-skinned cultivar is similar to ‘Beauregard.’ It gives us great pack out and you the bright orange nutrient-rich flesh you're looking for. Our buyers appreciate the uniformity of these potatoes. There's nothing like driving by a field of Orleans sweet potatoes - it is almost enough to make us say geaux tigers...but not quite!

O Henry

We are delighted to bring you white sweet potatoes this year. O’Henry sweet potatoes have a thin, off white to light tan outer skin and a white to creamy yellow interior flesh. Their unique flavor is reminiscent of nuts and honey- while baking it fills your kitchen with the aroma of sweet, warm honey. O’Henry plants grow in a cluster like fashion and have heart shaped leaves which are edible as well. somewhat dryer in texture, these potatoessoak up more delicious butter when mashed and hold up well for sweet potato salad.

Remember that at Penry Farms, Our Sweet potatoes are grown Using the latest in clean pest control, conservation tillage, and precision agriculture.
