    You're saying the purple skin with the orange inside at the market is just another kind of sweet potato? Is there any nutritional difference? If not, I'll just buy what's cheapest per pound.

    Yes they absolutely differ... Orange sweet potatoes will contain more beta carotene than say a Japanese sweet potato with white flesh. Japanese Sweet Potatoes are also pretty sweet so there may be a little more sugar in them as well. Go to Whole Foods as all sweet potatoes and "yams" are the same exact price per pound.
