Title: For Sale Dioscorea alata bulbils (white and purple)
Post by: pineislander on December 20, 2018, 06:20:06 AM
I have Dioscorea Alata bulbils for sale. There are two types, one is white fleshed and one is purple fleshed. Bulbils will be mixed sizes some small and some large. These were just harvested and should have dormancy about 2-3 months before sprouting begins.
I am asking $5.00 US dollars per pound plus shipping. $7.20 US Postal Service.
$12.20 total.

Yes, the bulbils are the propagative part of the plant and are edible. However, when you plant a bulbil you could get a new tuber 10-20 times larger so generally the bulbils this variety are used for propagation.

I am willing to sell less than a pound but minimum order is $5.00 US Dollars.

Sorry for the late reply. Checking on mailability neither Portugal or Italy will accept live plants or similar.
