Gilroy, Calif.-based Christopher Ranch is shipping Hawaiian-grown purple sweet potatoes.

Gilroy, Calif.-based Christopher Ranch is now selling Hawaii-grown purple sweet potatoes, said Patsy Ross, the company’s marketing director.

The product is a natural fit for Christopher Ranch, which also sources ginger from Hawaii.

Also known as Okinawan potatoes, Hawaiian purple sweet potatoes are native to the Japanese island of Okinawa.

The potatoes are irradiated before they are shipped to the mainland, Ross said. Product is being shipped in 30-pound cartons.

Christopher Ranch ships more than 60 million pounds of fresh California heirloom garlic annually.
