What is the difference between a yam and a sweet potato?

    Though these are often confused, and though some people actually think they are the same thing with regional names, these are actually different vegetables altogether.  Sweet potatoes come in lighter and darker skin varieties.  They are large tubers that taper at one end.  Yams are in no way related to sweet potatoes and actually come from a tropical vine.  These are incredibly large tubers with dark skin and very sweet taste.
