Orange Fleshed Sweet Potatoes: Where to buy?

Wolfgang | May 28, 2009 10:19 AM

I love sweet potato fries. Whenever I get them, they're always a beautiful reddish orange colour. For the past several months, whenever I check out the sweet potatoes at the market--Co-Op in Santa Monica, big name grocery stores, etc., I scratch them and the flesh is white.
The only ones I see with the orange flesh are labeled yams.

Will a yam fry taste like a sweet potato fry?

Where are you finding orange fleshed sweet potatoes?

I'm in Santa Monica but I get east of the 405 regularly for work.
