This dataset contains characterization data of sweet potato accessions conserved at NPGRL. NPGRL regenerates and characterizes germplasm aiming to provide morphological information to its plant breeding users. Characterization is performed on a project-basis manner, giving priority to accessions originally collected in the Philippines. The descriptors for sweet potato by IPGRI/CIP/AVRDC (1991) were used in the NPGRL sweet potato characterization
