Hello
I'm no expert, but my A. limeade (lime aide? ) looks very similar.

This looks to be one of the Hawaiian varieties which are old hybrids
developed for eating. I have one similar and it is usually identified
by the dark spot in the center of each leaf. Other species have this
but it seems to be seen a lot in the Hawaiian hybrids. I will try to
find a name for it but their are a few and it can be very hard to tell
them apart. The color of the tuber and the inside of the tuber could
help put the Hawaiian name to it. Thanks.
