The staple diet of many peoples, yams are nutritious and delicious — and also a very interesting shape. Who can’t resist a yam?
As Goddess of such an important food, AHA-NJOKU offers the complete yam service: yam growth, yam harvesting, insurance for yam farmers, yam jam, wham-a-yam, yummy yams...
Ahem. Sorry. Yams seem to have a strange mythological significance in African mythology. See NYANKOPON and RUWA.
Why not start your own plantation? You are never alone with a yam.
