What are sweet potatoes?
A sweet potato is just like a regular potato in that it is a starchy tuber. However, they are not related: the potato is a nightshade plant, while the sweet potato belongs to the morning glories and bindweeds family. Sweet potatoes are endlessly versatile. You can fry, boil, roast, grill and deep-fry sweet potatoes, just to name a few ways. You can even eat sweet potatoes raw! Our orange sweet potatoes are the best sellers, but we also have white and even purple sweet potatoes.
