Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a sweet potato and a yam?

Sweet potatoes and yams are two different tuberous root vegetables species. A yam is a common misnomer, and truly not a type of sweet potato. Yams, native to Africa and Asia, have a dark, rough skin and white, purple, or reddish starchy flesh. They can be small, like regular potatoes, or grow to surpass five feet. All sweet potato varieties–and there are thousands around the world–are generally the same size and have an elongated shape with tapered ends.


Any tips for selecting organic sweet potatoes?

Choose organic sweet potatoes that are firm to the touch with no signs of bruising or spoilage. Select vegetables that are uniform in shape for more even cooking.


How should I store sweet potatoes?

Store your organic sweet potatoes in a cool, dry, well ventilated container. When stored properly, sweet potatoes will be fresh for up to two weeks.
