If you haven’t yet tried ‘Hayman’ sweet potatoes, you are in for a treat! This tuber made its way to the eastern shore of the Chesapeake in the late 1800s, and is now considered an eastern shore heirloom variety. It’s hard to grow, hard to come by, but easy to eat! On a most practical note, we enjoy these tasty tubers steamed and mashed with the skins on!
