Sweet potato named Alabama state vegetable

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has signed off on the sweet potato becoming the state vegetable.

The state already has a state fruit, bird and amphibian. The idea to add the sweet potato to the list of emblems came from a Harvest homeschool class.

Alabama's state fruit is the blackberry, the bird is the yellowhammer and the amphibian is the Red Hills salamander.
