Japanese Sweet Potato


Dioscorea alata. The vivid violet-purple color of this sweet potato tells you that this is a very special vegetable. Not only is it extra-sweet, flaky and delicious, it’s loaded with anthocyanins (just like blueberries) that are a well known super-food nutrient. Originally from South America, this variety has been cultivated in Okinowa Japan for centuries. It’s a staple in the diet of people living in this longevity hot spot. One plant can yield 3-4 pounds of sweet potatoes.
