>Dear Folks:

We purchased a stoloniferous form of C. esculenta under the name of C. Red
Dot  and C. Orange Flower.  It has nearly taken over our pond.  This is
reportedly the variety C. esculenta var. aquitalis, which was imported as
slave food according to Scott Ogden.

Dear Tony,
Sounds like you have a BAD monster by the tail!!
I wonder how these stolen-producing plants were useful as ANY food, since
they rarely produce ant type of a sizable tuber?  Maybe the young leaves??
Saw an article, in I believe a Nat. Geo.  Mag. a few years ago of Taro
(Dasheen) being grown and harvested in the Carolinas, I believe it was, and
they named the cultivar, calling it "Trinidad", one of the cultivars I have
mentioned before as having originated in Trinidad, W.I., and it is very
Cheers, and a VERY merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and ALL my
friends (and a few not-so-friends??) on Aroid-L!!!
