ANITA CALPITO...Nope, they're not the same thing, at all. I've known this, for years. Yams don't grow here! They only grow in places, like Africa, Asia, Central and South America, and Oceania. So, what people, here, in the USA call Yams, are actually Sweet Taters! I love Sweet Tater Pie! :)

Thank you for clarifying the differences between yams and sweet potatoes.I knew that yams were white inside and sweet potatoes were orange ,but I didn't know yams are indigenous to Africa,thus causing the confusion.

Thanks for the information. I also thought they were the same thing, just a different variety.

Yam has a thick coarse covering, a sweet potato has a rather smooth skin

For us Jamaicans, yam is the larger one and we don't call the other one sweet potato

Interesting and funny at same time. What I take from the video is that living in the US, I've never tasted a yam. LOL
