generally known as the okinawan purple sweet potato--beni imo--but on guam, known as the rota sweet potato, as the nearby island is the main producer of this crop.
i like these better than the yellow or orange sweet potatoes (are the yellow ones yams? i get confused), as they are quite dense and starchy but not dry, and have an almost nutty taste to them. and they are crazy purple.
