Growing and harvesting

The sweet potato is a tuberous plant and grows below the ground. The sweet potatoes are harvested after 120 to 130 days. After harvesting, the sweet potatoes are left to rest for 5 to 11 days. During this time, any damage to the skin which may have occurred during the harvesting process is able to repair. In addition the starch is converted to sugars, which give sweet potatoes their sweet taste. The sweet potatoes are then cleaned, sorted, packed and transported to the Netherlands. At Nature's Pride, a portion of the sweet potatoes are repackaged from bulk boxes into consumer sizes. The consumer Girsac contains 750g/ kg of sweet potatoes.
