Organic Yams (Charleston)

  • PRODUCT INFO

    A close cousin to the orange-colored yam, the Charleston Purple Yam has and an elongated shape and striking shade of dark purple that is entirely natural, caused by the same red pigment that is in cherries and blueberries. This variety not only holds color during the cooking process, it turns an even darker shade of purple! A staple in Asian cuisine, the Charleston Purple has a drier, denser texture and more balanced sweetness than orange-fleshed sweet potatoes. The bright purple coloring makes for beautiful presentation and adds vibrant color to any dish. Swirl into white mashed potatoes for a unique color presentation!
