Garden Mystery

When weeding a particular bed today, a couple Grade 5 students found an unusual shape when pulling out one plant from the ground.  It could be a root, since it was found under the soil, and there wasn’t much to tell us about what the stem and leaf part of the plant might have looked like.  We saw no root-like tendrils.  They were found like you see in this picture.  Three of these bulbous shaped “roots” were found and each emitted a sweet odor, like a fruit, passionfruit is the closest thing I could think of that resembles it.  They are also both very squishy and dry, like styrofoam.  We took a picture of them in case anyone could tell us what they know about this unusual find.
