Chubas....you have been channeling the late, Julius Boos. Here in Hawaii,
araimo is commonly grown from the tubers in well drained soil in full sun. The leaves are edible too, but, cook them and the tubers well or you will pay the calcium oxalate price. When you buy your tubers, just make sure they have no blemishes and are fresh and plump, not dried and wrinkled. It should be easy. Typical taro is a bit different, and most of them are grown from the tops with a bit of tuber. This depends on the variety and how it produces offsets.
Good luck and good eating.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Edible Chubas
Something I have been thinking about: since I am in the process of relocating to warmer climes, and always like to grow my own vegetables, I was hoping to grow my own taro or eddoe (I prefer eddoe, as the small sized chubas are easier to manage culinarily). My question: can the edible chubas purchased in the market be planted out and grow, as we do with potatoes? Any tricks I need to know?
