SWEET POTATO - KUMARA

Kumara Sweet PotatoBy Donovan Govan. GFDL, CC-BY-SA-3.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Ipomoea batatas
Description

An Heirloom variety thought to originate in Polynesia, though the variety is also to be found throughout New Zealand. Tubers tend to be as large as sweet potatoes, with red skin and ivory flesh heavily marbled throughout in violet. This colour intensifies upon cooking. Especially creamy, Kumara is superb either mashed or baked. Contains high levels of Anthocyanins which has been studied for it's benefits with Alzheimer's Disease though it is best to research this or speak with an expert. Leaves are small and emerald green running from dark purple petioles, and can be eaten as a substitute for cruciferous Greens such as Kale either fresh or steamed.

Other Names: yam #LS10
