Apios americana tuberosa - A climbing herbaceous vine, so grow over a trellis or allow to grow through shrubs or trees. Gets its name from the bulb-like edible tubers. Has the culinary characteristics of a potato, although the flavour can be slightly nuttier than a potato and the texture can be finer. White and firm once peeled and best boiled or roasted. Plant in moist, but well drained soil, sun or part shade. The seed pods are also edible, following on after attractive pinkish flowers. Once a major food source for native Americans. Hardy. Priced for: one large or two/three small tubers
