Cannot find any reference to Kumute which I believe is a Vietnamese sweet potato whose leaves are used in stir fry cooking

kumute, we don't have it, if it does exist. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:54, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
I think you must mean khoai mỡ. "Kumute" is not a Vietnamese word. —Stephen 11:55, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
camote is a Spanish word for sweet potato and may have been borrowed into some languages of the Philippines such as Tagalog or Kapampangan but probably not Vietnamese which was under Chinese and French influence. — hippietrail 14:52, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
