Taro, one of the edible cocoyams, is a major root crop of tropical countries. 'Anyamanya' appears to be a new mutant varie ty. 'Anyamanya' is fairly resistant to Sclerotium rolfsii, the causative organism of cocoyam rot disease; flowers naturally under field conditions in one growing season; has a high multiplication ratio and quicker crop establishment; and probably contains little or no calcium oxalate crystals.
