I have them growing at my house. I found them slimy and gross. Maybe i did something wrong but based on my experience, I wouldn't get over excited.

Which part/s were slimy and gross, the tubers or the stems and leaves? I've read about this somewhere else but not sure to what part it refers.

If you cook them with dry heat, or fry them, you wont have that gummy/slimy texture after they're cooked.

They are really tasty and easy to grow.
I have 6 or 7 varieties/species.

That's great! They are very versatile food. They can be used both for desserts and salted plates.
