Air Potato
Dioscorea bulbifera

There is about 7 or 8 fruit hanging on this air potato vine but the smallest are hard to find unless you know where they are. They get much bigger, some as big as soft balls. I have grown this vine in full sun but it does better in shade.

Good Morning Ford3728!
I was reading your thread on the "Ornamental Yam" you posted in October...sorry I'm a new subscriber and I'm enjoying reading all the anyway, I your "Ornamental Yam" in the same family as the "Ornamental Sweet Potato" vine that grows so beatiful here in Texas?

Another question? I had 2 sweet potatoes that ended up shooting sprouts before I got to use them...will these eventually turn into "Ornamental Sweet Potato's" or Ornamental Yams? just wondering...what would happen if I let them continue growing and would they produce like the others...???
