  Colocasia esculenta
From: Michael Foreman mrdf at earthlink.net> on 2000.03.07 at 03:52:13(4170)
Any Taro connoisseurs out there? Here on the west coast I have found a
supplier of 2 types of Hawaiian Colocasia esculenta, but they are used
mostly for poi. My husband is from Jamaica and he claims the Asian or
Polynesian varieties are too soft. I guess there is a "Red Coco"
(actually Xanthosoma violaceum?) that is grown in Jamaica. Does anyone
know if this is the variety that is popular in Jamaica? Does anyone
know where I could find a plant? Thanks for your help!
