Produce of the Month: NC Sweet Potatoes

Our fresh sweet potatoes are from Nash Produce in Nashville, North Carolina. In 33 years, since being founded by Dale C. Bone in 1977, this farm has become one of the largest cucumber and sweet potato processing facilities in the United States. It’s prime location along with a commitment to quality, innovation, and customer service makes them a leader in the industry.

The sweet potato  is a large, starchy, sweet-tasting root vegetable. The softer, orange variety is often called a yam in parts of North America. Besides simple starches, sweet potatoes are rich in complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber, beta carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin B6.
