Dear Frank,

Your plants appear to be Xanthosoma violacium (the best name until Dr. Eduardo Goncalves completes his work on reviewing the species of edible Xanthosomas.) The rhizomes are commonly available in Jamaican Groceries as ''red coco".
Good Growing.


Dear members,
some time ago I have bought some "taro" bulbs on Ebay. On the pictures below
is the resulting plant. I would like to know what species it could be. I
would guess it is Xanthosoma lindenii "purpurea"...What do you think.<<


Any ideas are welcome. thanx a lot!

Frank Hardung
