Product Description

The Boniato (also called batata or tropical sweet potato).i It maybe pink, purple, cream, or red. However, its flesh is dry, white and smooth in texture. It also known as the batata and sweet cuban potato. Boniatos can be baked or roasted and can be served whole or mashed just like a regular baked potato. Sliced boniatos are also popular fried. Boniato’s flesh discolors rapidly when peeled, so put them in cold water right away. If you are boiling them, be sure they are completely covered with water for the same reason.
