Omani Desert Sweet Potato Blanket:
Each year the sweet potato patch gets more and more dense. I have propagated this variety of sweet potato to other tree guilds in full sun and it hangs in there throughout the summer then starts to flourish once the heat breaks.
This patch is in a heavily shaded zone and it grows very well throughout the summer months. In the end, there are lots of nice sweet potatoes which are delicious!
The Omani Desert sweet potato has light pink skin and white flesh. Once cooked or steamed they are very creamy and deliciously sweet.
I am always experimenting with different varieties of plants and trees in my garden to see which ones stand a chance in the Sonoran Desert. I have experimented with 5 other varieties of sweet potato for over three growing seasons and this is the winner that I will continue to grow year after year.
Integrate rather than segregate, observe, learn, and discover new things.
If you live in Tucson DM me for this plant. I have slips that I have already propagated out into containers for next season!! —
