Colocasia/Taro - ornamental varieties edible?

mimulus(z 10/24 SoCal)January 21, 2014

I grow several types of ornamental Taro - Illustrus, Mojito, Hilo Beauty, Black Magic in water tubs and wondering if they are edible. I believe they are all listed as Colocasia esculentus, which is the same name as the edible Taro. Anyone know for sure or eaten them?
