Sweet Potato Varieties

Grown with the strictest standards of quality, our sweet potatoes are nurtured throughout their development. From our micro-propagation and bedding houses to the packing line and all points between, we control the process that brings our customers the best product available.

While most sweet potato packer/shippers offer one or two varieties to their commercial customers, Scott Farms offers six varieties, each with its own unique appearance and taste. Whether its orange or white flesh, red or white skin, or even Japanese, you can order anything you need from Scott Farms.

Covington
Our newest, bushy variety, the Covington, is very uniform in shape with exceptional results. A high-quality eating variety, it has rose-colored skin that is slightly darker than Beauregard with a moist, orange flesh.
Beauregard
A bushy, vine-type sweet potato and has rose-colored skin with light, moist, orange flesh. It resists cracking and is an excellent yielder with shorter (90-day) growing season.
Hernandez

O-Henry
A relative of the Beauregard, this bushy, thin, white-skinned, vine-type variety has the same growing characteristics. Good yielder with shorter growing season of 90- to 95 days.
Carolina Ruby
This variety has dark red skin with an orange, moist flesh. This vine-type variety produces good yields with excellent shape. Great tasting variety with an intermediate growing season of 95 to 100 days.
Murasaki (Japanese)
Having a dark red skin and dry, starchy flesh, this long-season, bushy variety has high yield potential and also stores well.
