Colocasia) One of the original "Canoe" plants of the ancient Hawaiians, is both an incredible food plant and rich source of ornamental beauty in the garden. (Warning: only eat this plant with proper preparations as it can be poisonous otherwise.) We offer an incredible assortment of beautiful varieties that are generally hardy in zones 8-11, but are easy to grow almost any- where with winter protection. The Gettle family spent the winter in Hawaii and has become fascinated by the incredible diversity and usefulness of this amazing plant. We especially love the cooked greens! Grow well in moist soil and love warmth. Some of these may only produce small tubers, but all produce abundant leaves! Includes 3 assorted small plants.

We are super excited to be offering a selection of live plants, these are produced for us by tissue culture, a natural process that produces plants that are generally high-quality and disease free. We have some stunning new food crops in our plant listing, we hope you will try some of the exciting rare plants we offer this year. Pre-order now, as supplies on some these will be limited. The plants we ship are small, but sturdy, and we offer a 30 day guarantee on live plants. Most plants will be 6”-12” in height. Plants will ship as available after the first of April to the end of June. We will ship orders to southern zones first. No guaranteed delivery dates. No orders shipped outside of the USA. No Extra shipping costs, just pay our regular $3.50. (PRE-ORDER PLANTS WILL SHIP AFTER APRIL 1, 2017)

What are the pros? Arrived in great shape

What are the cons? Not standard edible cultivars

Review:

Plants arrived looking very nice. I was hoping for more standard edible cultivars- I'm a huge fan of taro leaf. Varieties received are Black Ruffles, Pink China, and Illustris - these seem to be mostly ornamental. Overall, I'm very happy with my order. We will see how the end up tasting this fall or sometime next year.
