Despite their name, Sweet Potatoes are not true 'potatoes' and can not be grown in the same manner as regular potatoes. Their care requirements are a little more complicated, as they are not frost-hardy and resistant like regular Potatoes!
Sweet Potatoes, or Ipomoea batatas, belong to the plant family of Morning Glory, and if you take a look at the plant's foliage and blooms, you will see the resemblance. The most well-known Sweet Potato comes with orange flesh. But did you know that white and purple Sweet Potatoes also exist? Each variety has a slightly different taste, texture, and use.
