The warm weather is helping sweet potato growers in California.

Last year's crop suffered some damage when heavy rains hit the early growth period of the sweet potatoes. Farmers say this year has been better, and as a result the crop has a consistent high quality.

The sweet potato harvest season started around Labor Day, and is expected to continue through November.
