‘Travis’ is an early maturity, high yielding sweet potato cultivar with resistance to soil rot, Streptomyces ipomoea [(Persons & W.J. Martin) Waks & Henrici] released by the Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station in 1980. It produces high yield of well shaped rose skin colored roots with a deep orange flesh. ‘Travis’ also has resistance to Fusarium wilt, root-knot and internal cork virus. ‘Travis’ was grown from true seed in 1974 and tested as ‘L4-62’.
‘Eureka’, a soil rot-resistant, high-quality sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas L.) formerly tested under the designation of L4-131, was developed by the Louisiana State University Agricultural Experiment Station and is jointly released by Louisiana State University Agricultural Experiment Station and the University of California Agricultural Experiment Station.
