Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In real life, Yam is the common name for some plant species (at least eight) in the genus Dioscorea (family Dioscoreaceae) that form edible tubers. Yams are perennial herbaceous vines cultivated for the consumption of their starchy tubers in many temperate and tropical world regions, especially Africa, Asia, and Oceania. The tubers themselves are called "yams", and there is a variety owing to numerous cultivars and related species.
  • Not to be confused with the American Sweet Potato (Ipomoea batatas) commonly known as Yams.
