Learn more about the sweet potato

Native to South America, this perennial plant produces delicious tubers with a floury texture and sweet taste reminiscent of chestnuts.

Colorful, their shades vary from yellow to orange, passing through purple, depending on the variety, and their shapes, sometimes quirky, are often elongated.

Used both for the preparation of sweet and savory dishes, sweet potatoes remain a staple food for certain populations in tropical regions.
