AbstractEighty five cultivars of Dioscorea esculenta were evaluated with respect to 54 morphological, physiological, agronomic, and culinary characteristics. Six superior varieties were selected and described. These are high yielding, disease and insect resistant, and excellent in the kitchen and at the table. These varieties should prove useful in Puerto Rico and other parts of the Caribbean, especially in substitution for the imported potato.
