Yams can be stored for several months at 55 degrees F.

Despite a physical similarity and a frequent confusion with their names, yams and sweet potatoes are not even distantly related. They are in two different botanical families. Yams are actually related to grasses and lillies.

Many wild species of yam contain the poisonous dioscorines, but when peeled and boiled or roasted they are said to be safe to eat.
