Flesh is not stringy & they're drier & less sweet... which is perfect for making sweet potato salad & mashed sweet potatoes. But keep in mind when using a purple flesh for sweet potato salad that it will turn your dressing purple, too!

Looks like a purple Japanese Sweet Potato. There are some varieties that have a purple flesh that is mildly sweet.
