Yes! From a horticultural point of view, the leaves are quite different to
the other Xanthosomas that I have seen in cultivation, they are a beautiful
silver-gray, and there is no naked sinus, it is 'full' all the way down.
From a culinary point of view, the flavor is of corn and peanut flour, the
texture a bit 'woody', so I use it grated then mixed w/ a little wheat
flour, grated onion, an egg, and use it for dumplings in split-pea soup!
