Re: [Aroid-l] Aroid recipes/edibility

Dear George,

	Thank you very much indeed for putting me on to this wonderful firm
in Suriname. I have already written to them. I feel sure that this must be
the plant I'm looking for, and Julius did suggest that it might be X.
brasiliense.  However there seem to be a number of similar plants!

John Criswick.

Hello everyone,

Could it be the Tanier Spinach? Here is a link for reference: 

I tried ordering once and, unlucky for me, the tuber/rhizome just 
rotted after I planted it.

One time when I learned that an acquaintance once stay in Surinam, I 
asked about it and was told that it tasted quite good.
