various types of plant structures that are enlarged, or swollen, as many say.
They are supposedly used by plants to survive the winter or dry months and
providethe necessary substances for regrowth during the next growing season.
There are both stem and root tubers.
Overview. The following tubers have been
recorded so far in the Compendium:
to be one of the many species belonging to the
tuberroot family, this plant is found in the cool climates of higher
altitudes. This hardy tuber is found throughout much of
Northern Sarvonia and has become a
staple of the Kuglimz as well as
being eaten by other peoples. Unlike most tuberroots that have a more bland
taste, the Tuberfruit is very sweet. In non-Tharian languages it is referred to
as follows: in
Kuglimz-Seitre the Tuberfruit is called Kul'coeir (lit. "Black Root") and in
Thergerim Jutog (from "Juuh
Tog", lit. "Sweet Root").
Brown, red, white, yellow, orange, and blue varieties
of these underground tuber-producing plants are popular with the
call them "Toggersek" inclusively. Grown mostly in sandy or loose soil,
this plant family is characterized by large dark green leaves above the surface
and a spreading root system which develops small nodules under the earth. The
nodules extract various nutrients from the ground and absorb water and sunlight's
energies to grow into variously-shaped and coloured vegetables. All varieties
are much improved by cooking, although they can be eaten raw.
