My sweet potatoes arrived wilted. Are they dead?

This is completely normal for sweet potatoes to arrive wilted or bleached. This happens due to the plants being in an enclosed space for transit. Sweet potatoes are very tough and if planted properly will provide you an abundant yield for the season.
