Hi Friends,

Just a quick report on the edibility of these previously discussed Dioscoria
sps. aka 'air potatoes' that are a pest all over Florida.   My niece very
kindly brought me several LARGE 'air potatoes' the size of soft balls from
around her home in Palm Bay, Florida.   I peeled, diced and cooked one in
salted water, and them mashed it w/ a little butter, but it failed the
taste-test miserably, it was bitter beyond belief!   So very sadly I will be
unable to assist in the elimination of this true pest to Florida!
