The lack of intergeneric hybrids is not total. A Japanese plant
geneticist has crossed Alocasia odora with C. esculenta (very poor
seed set and those seedlings raised v. weak growing -as of last
year none yet flowered) which suggests that there may well be
complex barriers to overcome (since Alocasia and Colocasia are
certainly v. closely related). However, another reason is
undoubtedly that no-one has ever really tried.
