Named after the Sweet Potato Capital in Vardaman, Mississippi, this attractive, even ornamental, Sweet Potato was released in 1981 by the Mississippi Agricultural Extension Service. Perfect for small space gardens, Vardaman is a bush, or short vine, Sweet Potato that is as attractive as its fruit is delicious. It has ornamental, deep red and green foliage with jewel-toned, golden-yellow skinned fruits that darken during the curing process. It has a moist, sweet, bright orange flesh. We can think of nothing more delicious than a roasted mélange of Parsnips
; Butternut Squash
; peeled, quartered Red Onions
; and big black or red seedless grapes with a light coating of olive oil and butter with thinly scissored Sage
leaves. Do not overcrowd the vegetables on the baking sheet: you want them to get a bit crisped and golden-brown. Roast in a 425°F oven for about 45 minutes.
