Dear All,
 A client who bought recently Apios americana  from me, told me that  these tubers  were  eaten 
by the indians and the first american settlers. It  contains 3x as much protein as potatoes. There is 
little information available on this plant.(there is nothing in the wiki!)  English common names  are  
said to be: groundnut - wild bean - potatobean - groundbean.
Does any one know that this speciesis still used as a vegetable

Kind greetings
Lauw de Jager
