Need help identifying a wild bulb plant

Posted by DarleneDean Florida (My Page) on

I've recently noticed several plants popping up in the mulch. They have large bulbs that when cut opened appear to be completely solid and green in color. (Like a melon) there is an earthy smell to them, nothing like onion or garlic. The foliage is somewhat slender and fans out and so far no flowers yet. I cannot find anything that looks like this and hope someone can help me figure this out. Thank you.
