My friend sent me a couple of winged yam pictures over the holiday in a “Merry Christmas” e-mail:
Impressive, eh? That’s a jar of peanut butter in the foreground for perspective. That’s ONE winged yam tuber.
Mart also reported that this was a two-year-old vine and that insects leave his vines alone. He also reported that the roots are delicious, particularly with butter like a white potato.
See why I call these puppies ?
It’s probably about time to do a new survival plant profile…
