What you may have are corms. Corms are a small bulb-like part of the
underground stem of crocus and gladiolus. The are the portion of Crocus
sativa that is used to seed the fields and propogate the plant. Corms range

too small to produce saffron. If the husk is still on, they'll look like
super-small tan garlic bulbs.
