I guess I should have qualified that statement. Cooking time depends on how large it is. I usually buy the larger ones as each one will easily serve 2 or 3 people.
I use the yellow ones and I use the garnet. They are both kind of sweet naturally and both bake up nicely.
A small yam will bake as fast, if not faster than a regular potato.
