Taro

Phil3's Edible Fruits
Update: 3436 days 19hrs

Comments: -

This Taro has been in the ground for nearly 2 years. Not 100% of the variety however tubers were given to us by a Tongan friend who said the tubers tended to be small and not of the usual large size of Taro commonly grown in Tonga. Will be able to confirm this when I dig up one of them this winter and see what sort of tubers we have managed to grow. In the South Pacific not just the tubers are eaten with this type of Taro, the leaves are cut off and boiled to remove the oxalic acid and then mixed with coconut cream and eaten. The stems are not used, only the leaves used this way.

Originally purchased under the name of Cherrie Berrie (Spelling?).
The flavour of these little bombshells picked straight from the bush is wonderful! Will try and propagate more of this for the berries.
