Stokes Purple Sweet Potato

The Stokes Purple sweet potato plant is in the same family as the morning glory.  It produces a large sweet tasting tuberous root classified as a root vegetable.  Purple sweet potatoes obtain their rich purple color from the phytochemical, anthocyanin. Phytochemicals are found in brightly colored, nutrient-dense foods and may offer the most protective health benefits against cancer and other diseases.

Purple sweet potatoes are also high in dietary fiber, calcium, iron and low in fat and sodium.  We love that they maintain their beautiful purple color when cooked. Try making baked purple sweet potato French fries!
