Wild yam has edible root tubers as well as tiny edible tubers on the vines in the fall. It is also called "light root."

This is an easy to grow perennial vine that will cover a trellis or arbor in no time with its heart shaped shiny leaves. It produces aerial tubers in the fall as well as larger tubers under the ground. I like it for its fast growing ability to cover an arbor to create shade. In Biodynamic uses, it is used to bring in light and is made into homeopathic remedies. It is also called Dioscorea Batatus. It grows well in hot, humid climates.
All of our seed offerings were grown here. We have been seed savers for 20 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds. The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. Remember we hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order. I go every other day so I also have time to garden.
