|I am looking for a vine with large heart shaped leaves. It bears fruit which looks something like a potato and the fruit can be saved over the winter, planted in the spring for a new vine. Do you know it's name and do you have any?

|Dioscorea bulbifera is the air potato you describe. It's a member of the yam family and is tropical in nature. Monrovia doesn't carry specialty plants such as this, but now that you know the name, you can order from a local nursery. Good luck in your search!
