ORLEANS

Ipomoea batatas ‘Orleans’ is in many ways a twin to ‘Beauregard’ - and at the same time an improvement. The smooth light rose skin and deep orange flesh is indistinguishable from ‘Beauregard’ so retail customers are still drawn as before. Even the sugar content is the same (11% total sugars in a baked product) as in Beauregard, but what makes ‘Orleans so outstanding for the growers is the regularity of the shape of the roots.
