EE called rhubarb

I got this at the recent Mercer trade. Can't tell you about the leaves yet, the old got fried and the new ones aren't open yet so don't know leaf size or color. BUT the stems do look just like rhubarb.
Anyone know the "real" name? Thank! Tally HO!

Very likely that the binomial name is Colocasia esculenta 'Rhubarb'.

RE: EE called rhubarb

There are several with red stems. One is call rhubarb and the other just plain red stem. They could be different or could be the same.

Here is a link that might be useful: Red stem
