Does anyone know where I can buy them in Canberra? I will check at our Asian grocery/veg shop.. but I have not seen any in Australia.. and nothing beats the taste... will buy if anyone has stock pleez - just not possible to get it here from NZ

Have seen them at Kim's groceries (around the corner from Maccas in civic), also sometimes at "Asian Supa grocery" at Belconnen. You can also get seedling from Daleys fruit trees. Good luck :)

Hi Santy, The fresh food markets (belconnen markets and fyshwick markets) have sweet potato. Most often they only stock the orange variety, but I have seen white and purple (purple skin, white flesh) there also. I am going to try to grow them this year, but keep in mind that they are not really suited to our climate!
