Quantity steadily improving in North Carolina sweet potatoes
The quantity of sweet potatoes has been steadily increasing in North Carolina to match market demands. This increase in demand allocates higher prices for sweet potatoes in both domestic and export markets. Nash Produce distributes sweet potatoes throughout the United States, and exports some to the United Kingdom and Italy.
Specialty packaging for sweet potatoes is currently high in demand; Nash Produce has recently introduced Mr. Yam’s line of sweet potatoes, a focus on convenience packaging for consumers including a steamable microwave bag of sweet potatoes. “Our only threat this season is if demand is higher than the crop we harvested. However, we foresaw this rise in demand and planned ahead to have the ability to ship and offer sweet potatoes year round.”
Weather has been a lingering threat to parts of the North Carolina where sweet potatoes are grown. Nash Produce has many growers in Nash County, NC where rains have not threatened the crop, but rather postponed the harvesting. “We’ve had relatively stable weather. We did have a little bit of rain that delayed our harvesting by a couple of days, but our crops were not damaged and will not affect our supply.”
North Carolina continues to refine the quality and variety of their sweet potatoes for domestic and export sales. “Our local universities work to research and develop a great sweet potato. They helped cultivate the Covington sweet potato as one of the best varieties in the world.”
