I checked our supplier to see if he grows okinawan and would ship to you direct, but the answer was no on both counts. Sorry, I couldn't help you.

Okinawan is a very long season sweet potato with a unique sensitivity to day length. It will grow rampantly in the summer but will not produce bulbous roots until shorter days in the fall. Overall, 140 days are required to produce edible roots.

I am fairly certain that dutch laws prohibit importing sweet potatoes from the U.S. because of several pests.
