  [Aroid-l] Xanthosoma is X. sagittifolium
From: ted.held at us.henkel.com (ted.held at us.henkel.com) on 2007.10.23 at 16:13:56(16590)

Ah-ha! I have just sampled the cooked rhizomes, and they have no sign of

the yellow color OR the nut-like flavor, and so to my taste they are X.

Julius has got to be just the best thing on this list. Has anyone ever
seen such a demonstration of truly scientific species ID as this? A
tour-de-force. Too bad he can't take a bite of them all. No need to wait
for an inflorescence.
