Product information "Ornamental Sweet Potato Treasure Island 'Manihi'"

The ornamental sweet potato Treasure Island 'Manihi'Ⓢ has very dark, almost black, finger-shaped leaves. One is almost tempted to think of the leaves of Japanese maple trees! This sweet potato variety is a striking eye-catcher for window boxes, balconies and gardens. Especially in contrast with colourful flowers, be it Pelargonium, Bidens or Dipladenia, the unusual leaf colour appears exceptionally intense. Together with white or pastel-coloured flowers, interesting arrangements can also be created.
Manihi' has many useful values: the dark leaves of the sweet potato Treasure Island 'Manihi' Ⓢ can be eaten like spinach. It is very healthy and rich in vitamins and minerals. The tubers of this sweet potato variety, which are bright orange in colour, are also considered superfood thanks to their high content of beta-Carotene. They can be used to make as smoothie, eaten raw as salad or cooked for various traditional and exotic recipes.

  •     Bright orange flesh with a high beta-carotene content
  •     Dark, almost black leaves, rich in vitamins and minerals
  •     Highly decorative, especially together with colourful flowers
