This grower is sure of this plant identification.
Happy to swap healthy TUBERS of an UNKNOWN COLOCASIA TARO variety. TUBERS are firm, egg-sized, striped and a bit hairy, sometimes sprouted slightly. Tubers grow into knee high plants with true green leaves, each leaf larger than the last as it develops. Grown outside in London pretty much all year round but die down in winter of course.
Taro, Cocoyam, West Indian kale
