Giant Yams in the CG.

My favorite CGer here planted the Giant Yam plants here when it was only less than a long ruler length. It took more than six months of growing to reach human height. Looks like it will still be a while before we can harvest the tubers. Meanwhile more baby yam plants seem to be sprouting out from the patch. I found out from the internet that the tubers are huge and they don't look anything like the ones we buy from the supermarket. I am so looking forward to this.

Update of Yam Harvest .... 29th Feb. 2012

Is the tuber edible for this breed?

Yes, these are edibles. We grow them in the edibles section of the garden.
