Yams Items


Sri Lanka is rich with variety of Yams and their names can be found somewhere else in this website. Creamy or firm when boiled or cooked, yams have an earthy hardy taste and usually a minimal amount of sweetness.

Even though they are available throughout the year, certain yams have seasons.  There are many different varieties of yams with fresh colors varying from white to ivory to yellow to purple while their thick skin comes in white, pink or brownish black.

Their shape is long and cylindrical sometimes having offshoots referred to as toes while their exterior surface is rough. Sunchoice Import & Export Co Ltd exports variety of yams from Sri Lanka.
