I planted sweet potatoes a few months ago. Some of the vines produced potatoes, others didn't. My first harvest consisted of 3 small to medium sized sweet potatoes. I wanted to do something fun with them, so I roasted them and served them as a side dish with lunch the other day. They were really easy and yummy. They weren't crispy like a french fry, but I've learned that unless you batter and deep fry sweet potatoes, they will turn out soft. I know I will be making these again soon.
