No matter how far you travel or which place you visit, it's virtually impossible to locate a finer, more delicious or unique sweet potato variety than the hard to impersonate Jamaican sweet potato. For many these 100% natural sweet potatoes rank highly in taste, texture, smell and quality.
The only thing not in their favour is the extravagant price tag. But that's all to do with their scarcity (like rough diamonds) and their journey. They arrive in record breaking time by plane not ferry or boat like their cheaper priced competitors. Everyone knows the only mode of transport that is more rare or expensive is a British Rail train that arrives on time!
Many Jamaican expats spend their time running from shop to shop trying to locate a genuine Jamaican sweet potato. If you've been wondering how come Jamaica produces so many gold medal sprinters... Do not worry they are one of the few crops that grow all year-round. You do not don't need to be an olympic champion to get yours, in case you were planning to dust off your trainers!
