“Eeny, meeny, miny, moe”. One product, four varieties, uncountable nutritional benefits!
Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, vitamin C, and potassium. They are also rich in fiber and have a relatively low glycemic index.
For many centuries, Aljezur’s rich soils have been growing an exceptional and unique variety of sweet potato, the Lira. An ancient culture that the hard work and dedication of many generations brought to modern days. The Aljezur sweet potato is a certified product known for its unique flavour, texture, nutritional value and immense gastronomical use! At this time of the year, the potatoes are still in the ground getting nice and big for the harvest later in October and November.
