ELEPHANT FOOT YAM (Amorphophallus paeoniifolius) Suran


Another popular underground vegetable is Amorphophallus or Elephant Corm called Suran in Konkani. A striking aroid from tropical Asia, elephant yam is extensively cultivated for its edible tubers. It is a strong herbaceous plant with erect, solitary stem usually 1-2.5 m in height and having leaves at the top which is highly dissected. The life cycle of the plant is usually for 4 to 6 years. At the end of the plant’s life cycle a large terminal inflorescence is produced. The underground stem is large globose with a depression on top. It is called corm and at the end of each season it produces small cormlets. The corm has carminative properties. It is also used as an expectorant. Corm is good for piles and is applied externally for treating rheumatism. Fermented juice of the petiole is used to treat diarrhoea.

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).
