Description

Yellow potatoes just like the white potatoes come in both round and oblong varieties. The newer varieties are characterized by their very smooth skin with few deep eyes, and a deep luxurious appearance. Some of the traditional yellow varieties have a rougher skin appearance with brownish netting and light freckling but have a deep golden buttery interior flesh that is moist and sweet.

Description

Sweet potatoes generally share the same cylindrical shape with tapered ends. The relatively smooth skin is usually white to golden-brown and the dense flesh can be firm or soft, varying from white to yellow or orange, or even violet to deep magenta. In general, varieties with white flesh have a firmer and drier texture, while orange-fleshed varieties are soft and moist. Sweet potatoes offer a sweet flavor and hints of nuttiness, with some varieties being sweeter than others.
