2 Disocorea Bulbifera EDIBLE bulbils
You will receive 2 bulbils.
This is likely the cultivar 'hawaii', but if not it is incredibly similiar. I received these from a trade with a grower in Hawaii.
If there is severely cold weather in the forecast, I may delay shipping until it warms up a bit. These are sensitive to the extreme cold.
Most dioscorea bulbifera selections available are the wild, toxic, inedible type. This is the cultivated type bred for edibility. They have the potential to get much larger than the bulbils I have pictured.
They can be stored by simply setting them out in a room. They will begin to slowly sprout in spring.
Set the bulbil snuggly on top of the soil in a large pot or garden bed. Water regularly. It will begin to send out roots. Make sure to trellis.
Google 'Tropical Yams and Their Potential Dioscorea Bulbifera' for further reading on this amazing plant.
