I don't htink it's yams. It looks like yams or sweet potatoes, but it's different.
For yams I get this:
薯类 = shu2 lei4 = yams (like a potato but orange and long & pointy)
土豆 = tu2dou4 = potato (regular kind, to me - white or red)
白薯 = bai2 shu2 = sweet potato (orange kind)

Some say yams & sweet potatoes are the same thing, some say they're different. I don't like them so I really don't care.
