From what I can make out using google the tubers are root tubers like
potatoes but I cannot find a picture. Dylans tap root scenario is not
typical of the solanacea which I know and which readily produce
adventitious roots, - in my opinion better to go with 'anchor' and
'fibrous' roots as a basis for root systems. I recall my father redrawing
diagrams and having school technicians make accurate models when he taught.
I have a feeling that the tubers may be dependent on night length to form??
I have read that this is so in Dahlia which is probably a very different
type of tuber -
