Edible Edo (Colocasia Esculenta) Elephant Ear After a Rain

Taro, DASHEEN (Colocasia Esculenta)

$10.00$65.00

Taro (/ˈtɑroʊ/) is a common name for the corms and tubers of several plants in the Araceae family. Of these, Colocasia esculenta is the most widely cultivated. Taro is native to southeast Asia. It is a perennial, tropical plant primarily grown as a root vegetable for its edible starchy corm, and as a leaf vegetable. It is a food staple in African, Oceanic and Asian cultures and is believed to have been one of the earliest cultivated plants. Colocasia is thought to have originated in the Indo-Malayan region, perhaps in eastern India and Bangladesh, and spread eastward into Southeast Asia, eastern Asia, and the Pacific islands; westward to Egypt and the eastern Mediterranean; and then southward and westward from there into East Africa and West Africa, whence it spread to the Caribbean and Americas. It is known by many local names and often referred to as ‘elephant ears’ when grown as an ornamental plant.

ORDERING:
A “Live Plant Germplasm” may be a hardy live plant, a whole tuber (bulb), or smaller plant offsets (mini-plants). What ships out on any given day depends on availability, where its going, size of the order vs. room left in the box, and possibly other factors. We prefer to ship live plants in the 6-10″ size range, but can always ship out whole roots while that method isn’t preferred unless the specimens are already rooting out. It can be unpredictable which ones rot completely vs. those that might offset a plant shoot or more and we prefer to keep the gamble on this end to minimize headaches for all.

Plant Germplasm (definition): Any portion of genetic material that can be grown into a live plant. Examples include seeds, stem cuttings (via many methods including air layering), root cuttings, root divisions (multiplication via division), leaf cuttings, leaf fragments (in tissue culture), rooted nodes (vines), “eyes” (offshoots from potato tubers), cacti pieces, etc. The term germplasm can also be used to describe a collection of genetic resources for an organism such as as a seed collection or, for trees, a nursery. ROOT CROPS: Buy live tropical Yam (Dioscorea) plants. Edible Sweet Potato (Ipomoea batatas) tubers for sale. Order Live Malanga (Xanthosoma), Eddo & Taro (Colocasia esculenta) corms. Purchase perennial ginger (Zingiber officinale), cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum) & turmeric (Curcuma longa zedoaria) rhizomes. Selling Jicama (Pachyrhizus erosus) 'yam bean' seeds. Live Semi-Aquatic Water Chestnut (Eleocharis dulcis) bulbs shipped worldwide. Note: Typically our bulb type live products are dunked into bucket full of an aqueous (water) solution of "Myco Madness" (mycorrhizal fungi), Humic Acid & Fulvic Acid along with the PGR's Brassinolide, Indole Butryic Acid (IBA) and Naphthalene Acetic Acid (NAA) to ensure root growth is triggered. Next the germplasm materials are packed into organic Coconut Coir which itself contains natural rooting hormones. If you intend to eat the roots you'll be ordering include a note and the roots won't be dunked in the PGR solution (which is more effective than compound powder or gel even though water doesn't 'stick' to it).
