Fresh Yam – 1 Piece

African Yams are starchy tuber vegetable native to Africa. West African yams, botanically classified as Dioscorea rotundata, are the tubers of creeping, leafy vines that can reach over twelve meters in length and are members of the Dioscoreaceae family. Considered to be one of the most important crops in Africa, West African yams are grown in the “yam belt” which is a fertile region of land spanning across Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Togo, Nigeria, Cameroon, and Benin. This belt produces over ninety percent of the yams sold globally and is one of the region’s primary cash crops. The edible yam tubers have a brownish bark-like covering or skin, enveloping a white to yellow succulent pulp.  West African yams are favored for their hunger sustainment, mild flavor, easy-to-grow nature, and long storage life, and are used in a wide variety of cooked applications.

YAM CARE: Store yams in a ventilated and dry environment. Do not refrigerate raw yam tubers. Always wash yams in cold water before cooking and then clean your hands in soap and cold water afterwards to avoid skin itch from cut yams
