Satsumaimo sweet potatoes have garnet colored skin and a pale cream colored flesh when raw. Once cooked the flesh turns a light yellow in color. The Satsumaimo are often longer and more slender tubers than other sweet potato varieties, boasting a mildly sweet flavor and soft, starchy flesh.
Satsumaimo sweet potatoes are available year-round with peak season in the fall and winter months.
Sweet potatoes are botanically classified as Ipomoea batatas. Popular common names for Satsumaimo potato varieties include Beniaka, Beniazuma and Kintoki. The Satsumaimo is grown primarily in Kyushi, Japan and from there these sweet potatoes are shipped to the rest of Japan and around the world.
