A light tan-skinned, white-fleshed sweet potato that is creamy and moist. Although their flesh is not orange, our O’Henry and Bonita sweet potatoes offer a very sweet flavor that is laced with nuances of nuts and honey. O’Henry plants generally grow in a cluster and have heart-shaped leaves that are also edible. They may be found year-round, but are usually harvested in the fall months. The O’Henry sweet potato is a great source of complex carbohydrates and dietary fiber, as well as vitamins A, C, and B6.
The O’Henry is an extremely versatile starch in the kitchen, and is used in both sweet and savory dishes. They are great for more traditional recipes like sweet potato pies, fries, and candied sweet potatoes, but are also commonly incorporated in breakfast hash and casseroles.
When storing your sweet potato, do not refrigerate as it will form a hard core in the center. Keep in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated container like a bin or basket.
