A rare chance to try a truly delicious regional vegetable outside Japan! Naruto kintoki are a variety of Satsuma sweet potatoes. Grown in southern Japan in Tokushima, on the island of Shikoku in Japan. Often noted in Japanese as having a hokuhoku (soft and flaky) consistency. High in fibre and other vitamins, this is not only delicious but healthy.

ITEM ID: #4775


Japanese Sweet Potatoes are different from normal sweet potatoes and yams that you might be used to. The red-purplish skin hides a delicious golden inside. Often sold in the winter wrapped in aluminium and cooked in coals or hot stones called yaki imo, this is the perfect snack or side dish all by itself. Wonderfully fluffy and sweet (but not too sweet) when cooked, this sweet potato is sure to become your favourite.

How To Use

Great baked and eaten by itself or for use in soups, stews like a regular sweet potato, or for use in desserts like Daigaku Imo.

• Vegetable/Fruit items are not available for Next Day Delivery Orders.
