This year the bulbils went lnThe fridge as soon as they ripened in September or October. I took some out in January not long enough poor germination. But only one month later chilled until Feb 15 they sprout very fast.

You have a Yam that produces bulbils? I've never heard of such a Yam.

All yams make bulbils. In the USA the term yam is used to describe (Ipomoea batatas) common sweet potatoes. True yams are white on the inside.
