Can I Compost Sweet potato?

(From the Vegetables category | No comments yet - start the conversation)

sweet potatoYes, sweet potatoes, also known (somewhat inaccurately) as yams, can be added to your compost heap.

As they’re a root that stores well, it takes them a good while to start breaking down if they’re left whole – cut them into chunks to encourage the process.

Sweet potato skin – peelings or otherwise left over skin – will rot down quite quickly.
