About taro

Taro is a starchy tuberous vegetable similar to a potato with a richer and more complex flavor that's slightly sweet and nutty. The flesh is usually white with purple specks, and it turns a characteristic light purple when cooked. For centuries, taro has been an important ingredient in cuisines worldwide, including the Caribbean, the Pacific Islands, Africa, China, Japan, Egypt, Greece, India, Rome, and Latin America. Taro is also known by numerous other names, including dasheen in the Caribbean, culcas in Egypt, and kalo in Hawaii.

Malanga and eddo are close relatives of the taro plant. Malanga has a slightly earthier flavor than taro, and eddo has more slippery flesh, but the three tubers are very similar overall and can be used interchangeably in recipes.
