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.

Do you prefer white or black rocket ovens?
