This taro cultivar is incredibly ornamental, with bold thick leaves and truly black leafstalks. The crop cycle takes 9-12 months from tip cutting to maturity. It is traditionally grown upland (not in permanently flooded plots), and it gives and excellent table taro (cooked steamed, fried or boiled). This cultivar is one of the most drought-resistant of all the Hawaiian taros.

Taro or Ñame is the edible corm of a spectacular plant with large leaves. Colocasia esculenta has large exotic foliage and produces thick edible "roots". It is an ancient crop native to a wide area of the world, from India to New Guinea and the Pacific Islands. It was also spread to Africa and Southern Europe in the far past.

Colocasia esculenta is easy to grow in moist to wet or even flooded soil. Full sun is recommended for the healthiest growth and the heaviest crop.

Growing taro in a pot

If you plan to grow Colocasia esculenta in a pot, then any pot is sufficient as long as it has a dish with water below. But a size of about 30 cm will allow the plant to bear its beautiful huge leaves and produce a few corms for the kitchen.
