Mark - Is this an edible variety of taro? A friend gave me a plant that looks just like yours. I thought it was an ornamental.

Ooooh! My taro were mostly taken down by the frost, be a while before I see any blooms. The blooms on mine look like white calla lilies.

The leaves look like Alocasia cuculata, Chinese taro. I've never seen mine bloom. A Lao friend gave it me. She said "We don't eat that".

Edible Taro is known for its edible roots, not flowers! LOL.

Mark - I'll pass on the option to nibble on the plant. I was just curious.

John - My plant was given to me by my Lao friend. What a coincidence.

I have planted the seeds from a few of my different black colored colocasia's blooms. I got babies that were hardy than the mother plants in a few cases.
