This is said to be the cold-hardiest or one of the most resistant of all edible "taros". It is also ornamental, with pinkcolour in the leaf petioles and main veins. So it can give both beauty and food. As for all edible taros, a long cooking time is needed before it becomes good to eat.

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.

What do we ship?

Depending on season and availability we will send a corm with few or no leaves, or a plant in a pot, or a plant bare-rooted in sphagnum. In any case you will receive one healthy plant!
