  Berry color of Colocasia esculenta
From: "Dr. Tom Croat" tcroat at LEHMANN.MOBOT.ORG> on 2000.01.03 at 22:43:43(3992)

I prepared a description of Colocasia esculenta for the Flora of
Veracruz treatment of the Araceae but no collection that I saw, nor any
literature that I could find had any mention of berry color. I rarely see
it in flower and it may never get pollinated in these escaped from
cultivation areas where I have seen it. So if anyone has seen it with
berries I would appreciate knowing the berry color. Also if anyone sees
anything wrong with the description in other regards I would appreciate
hearing back from you. Another point which I would like to clear up is
the number of inflorescences that it bears per axil. I have one
observation that I made where there was only one inflorescence per leaf
axil but I am sure that it probably produces more.
