Has anyone ever found tuber growth that looks like an old cauliflower head or coral? That's on a couple of mine this year.

Hi there
could be caused by bacteria, and called crown gall. I hope the link works. If your Dahlias have that stuff, it seems necessary to destroy diseased tubers.

Hope that helps, best luck, Lin

Here is a link that might be useful: Crown gall
