ñame white

Ñame White is also similar to a yam in appearance and a potato in flavor. It is a root commonly used in tropical countries, much like the potato is used in temperate climates regions. One interesting fact is that Americans use the word “yam” to refer to a sweet, moist, orange-fleshed variety of sweet potato. To everyone else in the world, a yam is what Americans call a tropical yam, ñame, a firm tuber with white flesh.
