not at all the same. Yams are yams and sweet potatoes are white inside but sweet. Sobey's sells them and yams. Give them a try.

....

I would like to grow these as well, but a little research shows that yams take a full year of frost free days to grow a yam. A sweet potato takes 100-150 days of frost free. I would like to try it but I have no idea where to buy seed since the ones you buy in the store are most likely sprayed with a chemical to prevent them from sprouting. Just like the normal potatoes.
