Poster: Sweet Potato Sensory Evaluation

This poster reports on sensory evaluation for sweetpotato. Based upon the results the authors conclude that orange fleshed sweetpotato can be promoted in developing countries in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) as a nutritious and not a poor man’s crop as may have been perceived. Sweetpotatoes can also be used to combat food insecurity in SSA as they are well adapted to warm tropical climates, and are more drought tolerant than Irish potato. When cured properly they can be stored for extended periods of time.
