What causes some sweet potatoes to be stringy? Is it the variety or horticultural practices?

Jim,

A lot of the problem is variety. Older varieties like Jewell and Centennial are a bit on the stringy side. Newer ones such as Beauregard may be much better as improved breeding is working the strings out!

Thanks and please stop in again with another question anytime we can be of assistance!
