The plant is a perennial herbaceous vine with heart-shaped leaves, often used as a decorative plant. The Sweet Potato (Ipomoea Batatas) is its tuberized root, belonging to the Convolvulaceae family, and despite the familiar name, it has nothing to do with the traditional potato, which belongs to the Solanaceae tuber family. The sweet potato is typically long and tapered, with a smooth skin that varies in color between yellow, orange, red, brown, purple, and beige. Its flesh, on the other hand, ranges from beige to white, red to purple, or yellow to orange. In fact, there is a vast number of species today (over 1,000), thanks to the incredible robustness and adaptability of the plant to various regions of the planet.
