All Sweet Potatoes that are of the Latin name Ipomoea Batatas, have both edible roots,(or tubers)and edible young tender green leaves. You can also eat the dried roots and dried vines. This site tells the story well......http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweet_potato Some sites list the foliage as toxic. I ate them. I was dilicious and I was ok.
