Decorative Sweet Potato Vine - Knowledgebase Question

When pulling out my Sweet Potato Vine a large tuber about 1 foot long and 4 inches in depth came out with it. Is it edible? Should I store it away just like a Dahlia or Canna tuber and will it bloom next year?

The tuber is edible but it isn't very tasty so I'd recommend storing it and replanting next spring. You can store it just like a dahlia tuber. It will sprout and grow for you next year. Enjoy your garden!
