    Regular sweet potatoes

    This might sound trivial but where can I buy regular orange/yellow sweet potatoes? Everywhere from Citysuper to local veggie market I see only purple ones which are not half as sweet as the regular sweet potatoes. Even when cooked the purple ones aren't so gooey. Would appreciate if anyone can share sweet potato experience

    Hi Geomum

    I have always been able to buy the orange ones at my local Wellcome whenever I've wanted them.

    I have bought them at Great, Wellcome on Robinson Road, veggie shop near park&shop on Caine road and the Graham Street market.

    Perhaps I was just lucky........

    I see only purple sweet potatoes and yams (Which looks like orange/ yellow sweet potato). Thanks for your replies, It seems I need to look more carefully next time :)

    you can get the ones you are talking about at many supermarkets. they are imported from the USA and are quite expensive, but VERY yummy!

    they sometimes even have organic ones at park'n'shop

    Taste in Stanley, the GREAT Foodhall in Pacific Place and Oliver's in Prince's Blding always seem to have them.
