Sweet Potato vine, that is. Used as an ornamental plant, not a vegetable.

Compare to the 'Blackie' cultivar of Ipomoea batatas:
Ornamental Sweet Potato (Ipomoea batatas 'Blackie')

As edible as any other I. batatas (sweet potato) tuber.

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.
