Mini tubers are plant parts that root when planted into soil and eventually create new plants. In the example of potatoes, these are often the "sprouted eyes" on the fruit. In the case of Dahlias and Begonias, mini tubers refer to a portion of the root system that has been cut and shipped to you for re-rooting. - Chelsey Fields, Vegetable Horticulturist
