It is Friday afternoon and 90 miles to home and the sign on the Long Island
Expressway says long delays so I get off and take the local streets and wind
up thirsty and near a large fruit stand that says West Indian food and get
something to drink and pass by the vegetable area and notice some tubers that
I purchase because I have been lurking here and remember that somebody might
kindly advise me as to how to grow these two types of aroid called "Eddoes
and "Red Colo". Thanks in advance and good growing.

I live here on Long Island too (Stony Brook, exit 62). Xanthasoma and
Colocasias priced for eating would be perfect. I'd love to head there and
try sprouting these myself. (Yes, I might snack on a couple others)
Besides being great having the plants, it would reinforce the fact that
stocking these types of items is profitable. Perhaps this would stimulate
more shops in the area to carry these. So where's this West Indian fruit
