2-, 5-, 8-, 10-, 40-, and 50-lb. cartons.
Look for taro root that is firm, dry, and plump. Avoid product with cuts, mold, or soft spots.
Short-term storage recommendation (7 days or less)
Decay can occur if taro roots sustain cuts or other physical damage.
Water-soaked or soft spots and increased decay are signs of chill injury. Store properly.
Mildly sweet, with a nutty, seafood-like flavor.
Outer skin is tough and sometimes has hairs or strings much like a coconut; inner flesh is firm when raw and starchy, soft and custardy/slippery (some say slimy!) when cooked.
Pair with coconut, green onions, miso, onions, and pork.
Boniatos, potatoes, water chestnuts, yams.
