Dioscorea esculenta (Loureiro) Burkill
(Yanm) kouchkouch blan. Potato yam.
Topi tanbu. Yanm glo cho.
Native to tropical Asia

The potato yam is smooth skinned and white inside.  The stem is very spiny.
10cm leaf.
We found a different variety
at Au Leon which the farmers call topi tanbu. It is not the real topi tanbo.
Another thicker-skinned variety was found in Mon Repos - it is called yanm glo cho - it is so quickly-cooked it is placed in boiling water and the heat turned off.
