Re: Sweet potato

Well there are plenty in both Coop and Migros here in Bern, plus parsnips if anyone is interested.

Re: Sweet potato

Coops all seem to have them in the exotic section with mangoes, ginger, coconuts and the like

Re: Sweet potato

They have them in Coop in Baden, I'm sure you will find them easily. As Caviarchips says, look in the exotic section. ( that sounds very wrong!)

Re: Sweet potato

They do have them in the Coop in Zug & also the one in Affoltern am Albis. Don't look beside the potatoes for them though like someone said earlier you need to look next to the exotic fruit & veg.

Re: Sweet potato

If you have a garden you could try and grow your own. You need to get them started in a jam jar of water and as soon as the roots and sprouts form they need to be in as soon as the frosts have gone. They are a type of vine and have a long growing season. Will try next year!

Re: Sweet potato

Migros zug, vegetable section, they are a bit hidden to be honest. Check below the exotic fruit.

Re: Sweet potato

Sweet potatoes are available in Zug Migros and also Coop Oberageri, Coop Unterageri, Migros Unterageri.

Either look harder or ask one of the staff: ''Wo sind die SŁŖkartoffeln??''


cheers
