Overview

What is a Stokes Purple® Sweet Potato?

  • Special sweet potato variety with purple skin and bold purple flesh that intensifies when cooked. Aside from its unique bold color, the Stokes Purple® Sweet Potato differs from other sweet potatoes and yams is in its flavor and texture, offering a favorably dryer, denser, and richer taste with well-balanced sweetness. The Stokes Purple® Sweet Potato is grown in California and is non-GMO.
  • Organic Stokes Purple® Sweet Potatoes are also available.

How to Eat

  • Scrub external skin and wrap potatoes in aluminum foil. (Rub with olive oil prior to wrapping for extra moist results.) Place wrapped potatoes on a baking tray and bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The dense flesh of this potato takes a bit longer to cook than most other sweet potatoes, but it’s worth the wait!

Health Benefits

  • Excellent source of vitamin C and also provides fiber.
  • Unusually high in antioxidants, such as those found in blueberries.
  • Like most sweet potatoes, the Stokes Purple® has a low glycemic index, essential for weight watchers and diabetics.
