Caption: Taro plants. Exposed roots of taro plants (Colocasia esculenta). This plant is cultivated for its large, starchy, spherical modified root or tuber (lower frame). These tubers are consumed as cooked vegetables or made into puddings or breads. However, they must be cooked before eating to eliminate a poisonous substance, calcium oxala- te. Taro is grown in tropical regions throughout the world. Photographed in Kapoho, Hawaii, USA.
