     I did some digging (yay, a pun) and found my old sweet tater thread. http://thehotpepper....sweet-potatoes/

how long do you keep your sweet potatoes in the ground for? I had some and have heard to pick them when there's a frost, but we don't get those in miami lol I bought the vines, didn't start from a potato. 


     Just keep in mind that sweet taters need to be stored for a few weeks at high temps (~85-95F) with high humidity after harvest to callus over and cure. Doing so allows the tubers to convert starches to sugar and gives them a chance to heal any wounds they sustained during harvest.

     I've grown sweet potatoes for the last few years and can attest that they store longer and taste much better if they are cured properly after harvest. Being in Florida, you'll probably have much better luck than I did maintaining high heat and humidity during that time. :D

Why do I feel like I did something wrong after I read this thread? Like I need to confess something...


     I know what you mean. I feel like I need a shower.
