  Amorphophallus tubers
From: "Chris Read" exoticplants at hotmail.com> on 2001.04.18 at 01:33:23(6197)
In the vicinity of Tooting Broadway tube station I found a couple of Sri
Lankan greengrocers/general stores with an interesting array of produce:
Amorphophallus paeoniifolius (several kilos each) at ?2.65 a kilo,
Pachyrhizus erosus (yam bean), same price, Feronia limonia (wood apples),
same price, Moringa oleifera (drumsticks), various yams, banana flowers,
jackfruit seeds, etc. From these two shops you could raise an interesting
display of edible tropical houseplants. Next time I shall try Southall
market as Peter Boyce suggests - it may be even better!
