The Q&A Archives: Potato

Question: Is it unusual for potatoe`s to grow on the hand of a potato plant and are they poisonous?.

Answer: There are both edible and inedible kinds of Dioscorea bulbifera. This plant is often called Air Potato because of the tubers it develops. Without knowing exactly which one you're growing, why not be on the safe side and consider the potatoes decorative only, rather than something to harvest and eat.
