Photos sent to Peter Boyce confirmed its ID as Colocasia
esculenta var.
Hope any other buyers will change the ID and label it appropriately.
Thanks Pete.

For those in the tropics of zone 7 south, Colocasia esculenta var.
aquatilis is incredibly weedy. We have been pulling it out for years not

In brief:

Smaller, slustering tubers: C. esculanta var. esculenta
Large, usually solitary tuber: C. esculenta var. antiquorum
Almost no tuber development but, instead, long stolons: C. esculenta var.
