Expert Answer:

Sweet potato stores excess of food. It does not have eyes or buds on its surface, which shows that sweet potato is a root modification. The part of sweet potato that is eaten is the tuberous root. Sweet potatoes have orange flesh with high sugar content. The skin is orange to brown, and the ends of the tuberous roots are pointed.
