Satsumaimo (Japanese sweet potatoes) are harvested in autumn in Japan. I have rarely eaten sweet potatoes except those from Japan, but I hear that Japanese sweet potatoes are sweeter than other countries’ sweet potatoes. They are a health food because they have a lot of dietary fiber. They are usually baked or steamed. The sweetness increases when heated. Because they are healthy and sweet, they are very popular among many Japanese women. They are often eaten between meals as a snack.
