    Nice video. I use half of a clamshell digger or a tile spade to get at them. You have to dig around them so you don"t break them which some consider a sloppy job. I have about 6 different types of yams.

    I didn't know you owned a shovel. I thought you did all your digging with the machete or that humongous broad-fork thing you use. 😉 Also, aren't you tempted to harvest a cow here and there for steak and taters? lol

    Thats YAMAZING! Some of the pieces you lost when they broke off will spring back up with in 1 -2 years Once they established they can have root shoots 3 meters down. Some Yams in Africa it takes 3 days to dig out with sticks, You cannot rush as super fragile! thats how they survive!

    That is the d.r. I can tell by the soil. Sticky when wet and VERY stiff.

    Hello All, anyone know the exact name is of this Yam variety, I am on a hunt for a good yam & if you could help with the correct name that would be a great help as I have come across a range of them looking different with the same name from China, New Zealand etc ? Thank you so much

    looks like they do well in zone 7b too. Just dug some good sized roots from the garden that I planted out in May.

    Do you grow or know where to get elephant foot yams? or elephant yam flour? Trying to procure some for the health and nutrition properties. Thanks for anything you know. Beautiful yams by the way!

    perhaps next time plant on a bit more of an honest slope or piled earth. Then you can dig from under and pull them out in the direction they are growing. undermining in these situations is so much easier (esp with clay, you can break it out with just a bar in chunks)

    So nice to hear you recommend smoked bacon. So many of the gardening channels on youtube are by vegans. Vegans miss out on the deliciousness of bacon and I feel sorry for them.

    How can you tell the difference between bulbifera and alata?  A purchased two yams from a small farmers market in Loxahatchee, FL.  I was told that they grow wild out there.  They also gave me two bulbils.  I'm nervous about eating the yams and planting the bulbils though because I want to be sure that I have the alata variety and not bulbifera.
