    The scientific name is Guibourtia ehie, ovangkol and shedua are common names in different languages of this same tree. Think of acer: you can call it maple, I call it acero, but it's the same plant.

    Only fairly recently did I learn that
    Yams and Sweet Potato plants are
    not just kissin cuzzins, but are the
    exact same plant.

    Harvest early, it's a yam [sweeter]
    but harvest later and it's a sweet
    potato [accumulates more starch].

    Now you know.

    Now I'm left wondering if the choice of name,
    or maybe the spelling, brings out the mids ...
