Sweet Potato: Past to Present

ʻUala, also known as sweet potato or okinawan sweet potato, is one of the oldest known crops, originating in the western hemisphere and grown sustainably by Native Americans for thousands of years. Now spread globally, sweet potato is a sustainable favorite, fitting well into the Pacific agroforestry model and introduced to Hawaiʻi during the plantation days. 

From the three sisters to Pacific agroforestry, ʻuala has always played an important role in sustainable food systems.
