Dear Julius,

You may want to contact the people at The Banana Tree, because they seem to 
know something about Dioscorea varieties:


                   AIR POTATO - Dioscorea bulbifera - We are offering small 
tubers of the Air potato. A mature plant
                   is quite a sight. It grows vigorously producing upright 
vines that are often supported with some
                   type of trellis. The dark green leaves are heart shaped 
and attractive - but its the aerial potatoes that
                   steal the show as they begin to develop at various 
intervals on the vines. Although they are
                   thought of as a novelty, they actually are edible. Not to 
be confused with another variety which is
                   rather bitter. They are very easy to grow. Provide warmth 
and bright light. Now available. No
                   shipping to Florida or Texas. ... $3.95 Ea.
