Apparently Purple Yam, Winged Yam etc. (D. Alata) is grown as a staple crop in many parts of the world.  From what I've read, it can be grown as an annual in USDA Zones 6-10.  I'm in Zone 6, and I was looking for any information about growing these in more temperate climates, (Like what kind of yield I should expect-will it be very small because of the shorter warm season than the tropics?). Does anyone have any experience with this?  Any information will be helpful.
 
It's a pleasure to see superheros taking such an interest in science. And this tiny ad:
