Tennssee Sweet Potato Pumpkin Vision: taste "just like sweet potatoes"

Updated on January 8, 2012

Great eating, live giving, sweet potato pumpkins

The sweet potato pumpkin is a great tasting (tastes "just like" a sweet potato), very nutritious food that can be used in place of a sweet potato for making sweet potato dishes (especially pies).

These plants are easy to grow, from the seeds, and it was good to note that no diseases were associated with the plants. We, here at Mamushi Nature Farms, use the USDA Organic Standard method for growing plants and animals, so we do not have the luxury, or option of using powerful chemicals to contain diseases. We love heirlooms, such as the sweet potato pumpkin, that do not require us to use traditional, non-organic methods of controlling pests and other destructive forces.

The sweet potato pumpkin is a very old heirloom from the 1800s and may be difficult for you to locate. We, here at Mamushi, have adapted the vision that we must save some of our own seeds, especially for our needs. We try to have extra seeds in order to others as best as we can since we do operate a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization to help with global hunger relief efforts. If you can't locate the seeds, let us know.

Other nonprofits who want to grow foods, and want to be recognized as organic, may contact Mamushi Nature Farm for advice on how to proceed with this organic food initiative. There is a basic platform that every organization, for profit, or nonprofit, must build upon in order to be considered organic. We, here at Mamushi, have spend a good deal of time working out the details. It is not very difficult, but a number of detail and a basic approach to record keeping is essential. To be truthful, it is not very difficult at all. Don't allow the few requirements with record keeping and the "paying attention to detail," to discourage you.

Regards, Dr. Haddox
