100-120 days, vining-type — 'Hernandez' sweet potatoes are copper-red skinned with uniform, deep orange colored flesh that remains soft, moist, and lightens to a yellow color when baked. Although late developing, they are high yielding, have excellent storage qualities, and are excellent for baking and processing.

Bred by Louisiana State University Agricultural Experimental Station. 'Hernandez' is resistant to fusarium wilt, soil rot, internal cork, and several post-harvest diseases.[1]

Note: 'Hernandez' should grow fine in most all states with exception of Northern States who must take the extra step of warming the soil two to three weeks before your plants arrive. This is accomplished by hilling your soils into beds or raised rows and covering them with black plastic.

Informational Resources:
  1. "Vegetable Cultivar Descriptions for North America – Sweetpotato, Lists 1-27 Combined," Edited by Don R. LaBonte, Department of Horticulture, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Please carefully read the ordering and shipping policies found on the main sweet potato category page - click here. There is no way of accommodating special requests. The fulfillment of sweet potato plant orders is extremely time consuming and even more so, time sensitive.

Your order will be shipped to you in the date range for your zone as described. Please note that even if the cart shows First Class Postage, plants ship out from the farm in Tennessee on Mondays and Tuesdays using U.S. Priority Mail. With these methods, plants are healthy and strong when they arrive.

As a reminder, sweet potatoes can ONLY be sent to the LOWER 48 STATES and ship using the U.S. Postal Service. In order to minimize delays or lost packages, please provide a valid U.S. Mail address.
