Baby yams are petite, roughly oblong and tubular in shape, their ends tapering to a point. Their skin is semi smooth with colorings ranging from earthy salmon to pale garnet. The flesh is moist and dense with colors varying from deep yellow to vibrant orange, depending on variety. Their flavor is quintessentially earthy and sweet.
Baby yams are available fall and winter.
Baby yams are the young, immature edible root of the same plant as mature yams. They are not true yams, however. They are botanically classified as sweet potatoes, though their orange colored flesh would lead you to believe otherwise. American yams are all, in fact, sweet potatoes. No yam variety grows within the United States. The baby yam is generally a Garnet or Jewel variety of sweet potatoes.
The nutritional value of the yam is principally as a source of carbohydrates, though if eaten in large quantities it can provide a substantial amount of protein, thiamin and vitamin C.
The common yam is native to Southeast Asia. It spread from there to the Old World tropics of Polynesia to Madagascar and East Africa. It is grown in both the Old World and New World in tropical environments. Sweet potatoes are native to Peru and Ecuador. They can grow in both tropical and temperate climates, hence their ability to be cultivated in America.
