Larry being in Cannada, I can understand as sweet potatoes have predominately been grown in the southern half of the US. It's only been in the last 30 yrs, that they have become common north of the " Deep South".
A secret I Think they should have shared sooner.
Growing up with only canned sweet potatoes? I was not that fond of them myself. They were a holiday food only. And since most around here candied them and served them with marshmallows. And I too never cared for them that way.
Now that they are available fresh in the markets and I have learned the various ways they are prepared, well now that's a game changer.
They are now one of my favorites. Baked with butter a litle sugar and cinnomon is one of my favorites(wife eates hers with a little butter, salt & pepper).
Breakfast fries, or french fried, And if there is a pumpkin pie or sweet potato pie sitting side by side, I'll take the sweet potato pie every time. There are a multitude of things I would not eat growing up, because it was only available in cans and just plain nasty.
Now that they are available fresh in the market, I have found things like spinich, asparagus, peas and almost everything I would not eat are quite tasty and are now favorites.

Frank Robinson, a guy I work with who grw up in Tuskaloosa,Al. and I were talking recently.
It seems up here we have a year where they do very well and the next year they may not do worth a darn.
I'm looking for varieties that do well in our climate.
