Hawaiian Purple Sweet Potatoes are richly nutritious (also known as Okinawan potato or purple yam). They're fat-free, low in calories, high in fiber, and loaded with antioxidants.
Sweet potatoes are a very old food in Hawaii, thought to have been transported to the islands by the earliest Polynesian settlers. They originated in Okinawa.
This potato is said to be one of the reasons Okinawans are living active disease-free lives past the age of 100 because it provides a clean and sustainable source of calories that are loaded with health benefits.
While chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and obesity are becoming more common in our aging population, there are 5 areas of the world called Blue Zones that are home to some of the world’s oldest people, called centenarians, that are living to be more than 100 years old.
The total weight of each box varies depending on the size, shape, and mass of the fruit:
- Small Box contains up to 3-5 pounds.
- Large Box contains up to 8-10 pounds.
- Extra Large Box contains up to 16-26 pounds.
We ALWAYS recommend ordering a LARGE BOX for the best value, when compared to a Small Box. Because shipping, handling, and delivery are so expensive per package, the Large Box will contain more fruit and ultimately a better value.
