When we moved to Arizona, almost one year ago we had a voluptuous sweet potato plant which died from its miserable journey in the big yellow penske truck. We planted another one and despite the horrid heat it has been doing very well. The pineapple plant behind it is also doing well after trying to start like 16 pineapple heads. We lost half of our plants to a gnat infestation this summer. Anyways go sweet potato.
