Are the tubers on the ornamental sweet potato vines edible? I found three very large pink ones the size of the orange sweet potatoes for sale in the grocery stores.


The tubers on the ornamental sweet potato are edible, but they do not taste as good as the sweet potato or the yams you grow or buy for that purpose. There are varieties of these you can grown in our area for that purpose.
