Fru.Eat is an expert in knowing when the correct time has come to harvest sweet potatoes. The harvest of sweet potatoes depends a lot on the seasonal growing. When growing sweet potatoes one should be aware that the season through which the sweet potatoes have grown need to have adequate water and sunshine. Thus, harvesting sweet potatoes should begin about 100 to 110 days after planting depending on the variety. Usually it seems to occur in late September or early October before the first frost.

How do our partners harvest Sweet Potatoes?

Sweet potatoes have delicate skin that is easily bruised or broken of not treated appropriately. Our close partners that grown sweet potatoes make sure to sink the garden fork far enough out from the plants to avoid damaging or tearing apart the tender roots. After the excavation, they place them carefully on the carrier.

How do we take care of the sweet potatoes?

When our partners send us the the sweet potatoes, we, at Fru.Eat, thoroughly cure and pack them carefully in boxes. Then, we store the sweet potatoes in a cool, dry and dark place for the winter until our wholesale investor reaches out for an order. A rule of thumb is that properly cured sweet potatoes can be stored for six to ten months. The knowledge of knowing how to harvest sweet potatoes properly can increase the storable yield for your store’s consumer.
