Orange Flesh Sweet Potatoes Vine And Tuber Now Available In Ikorodu, Lagos by adejulnairaland(m): 7:42pm On Sep 20, 2020
Orange-fleshed sweetpotato (OFSP) is a special type of biofortified sweetpotato that contains high levels of beta-carotene. Beta-Carotene is an organic, red-orange pigment abundant in plants and fruits. The role of sweetpotato is becoming more important and substantial. The orange-fleshed sweetpotato varieties can contribute to combating vitamin A deficiency, iron and zinc.

The idea of going into OFSP is to help solve the malnutritional problem, poor immunity, visual impairment and cognity inability among other problems in our society.

One good thing about this crop is the usefulness of the vine for vegetables and the tuber for various food products. Sweetpotato products can be made from sweetpotato flour, mashed boiled sweetpotato roots, or fresh sweetpotato roots. Some products from OFSP can be prepared, such as: Sweetpotato Bread/scones/buns, Sweetpotato Doughnuts, Sweetpotato Juice, Sweetpotato “malt” drink, Mixed sweetpotato vegetables, Sweetpotato leaf stew with “egusi” (sweetpotato palaver sauce), Multi-mix feeding recipes: roots with cowpeas, tomatoes, fish, meat, etc., Boiled sweetpotato in a peanut sauce, etc.

As a farmer, you can reach out to me and order for your vine and propagate as well as the tuber for processing as highlighted above.

The quantity is actually dependent on the size that you eventually get from the farm. The quantity that makes 1 kilo for bigger size will not be the same for smaller sizes.
