About 13 years ago I got a postcard in the mail that said, "Dear SSE member, would you like to buy some Apios?" It said they were from the LSU breeding program, and I got 4 tubers for $20. I certainly got my money's worth. They have not disappointed us, though at times they have frightened us, much like the sunchokes and the bamboo. I take that back, they are not nearly as frightening as the bamboo.
I am intrigued that someone said they don't make seeds up north. That implies that Apios is another one of the native food producers that the native Americans took north. Donna
