Growth & harvest

The sweet potato is a root vegetable and grows under the ground. Sweet potatoes are harvested after 120-130 days. The potatoes rest for 5 to 11 days after harvest so any possible skin damage occurred during harvesting has time to heal. During this resting period the starch turns into sugars in the sweet potatoes. This process ensures they get their delicious familiar flavour. After this the sweet potatoes are cleaned, graded, packed and transported to the Netherlands.
