Potato Fact #79

In 2012, CAREnergy president Dr. Janice Bohac-Ryan toured NPR while pushing a 20+ lb. sweet potato in a baby stroller. The so-called eTuber™ (described as being the size of a turkey and shape of a human heart) was expected to yield 1,800 gal of ethanol per acre, compared to the 300 gal per acre typical of corn. However, the project has been mysteriously abandoned and the trademark is dead.
