With a growing Asian community we are being exposed to more Asian culinary
delights.
At a local market I bought a plant, labelled only as Bac Ha (both a have
accents which I can't replicate here), which is clearly a dwarf aroid under
our conditions.

Can anyone suggest a proper name please.

Dear Julius,

In Southeastern and Central Brazil we eat the leaves of Xanthosoma
sagittifolium (people call it "Taioba") and it is delicious (I liked it
even when I wasn't an aroid specialist!).

Eduardo.

Julius,

Am enjoying the exchanges but still don't know that I am any closer to
naming the Aroid. Would love to have the courage to try eating some.

Hope the offer to visit applies to me as well.
