Re: Persisting Taro, Bok

Greetings, locally we have a grower that produces 10,000 Colocasia tubers
each season. The tubers are dug in November and left to dry for 2 months
before being boxed for shipment to the international bulb (tuber)
companies. This plant will live in the tuber state for months and if
large, I would guess a year or more. They dry very slowly and although
they tend to start new growth in warm weather, the development is slow. I
have some I got in November and they look no different now than when I
picked them from the field.
