Kumara is the New Zealand native Maori name for Sweet Potato. It was bought to New Zealand by early Maori settlers, over one thousand years ago from Pacific islands. They quickly became pros at cultivating it and soon became a staple in their diet.
The majority of Kumara is grown in Northland in the Northern Wairoa region where soil type and climatic conditions suit it perfectly.
Red Kumara (Owairaka) is the most recognised Kumara in NZ with a distinctive red skin, a creamy white firm textured flesh.
