I was wondering, how many different types of Taro are obtainable in Sydney? I have been looking around and only find the common varieties. Possible to order rarer varities throught Garden Express?

Hi Forever-Mango,

my dad grows taro (he's here in Sydney also) but I am not sure if it is the common variety or rarer one like what you are looking for. The leaves on his are like GIGANTIC elephants ears. When he chops them down I take them to work and the kids walk around using them as parasols.

What does the rarer one look like?

OOOOh, I now think of them as mulch or in the compost, especially after seeing Jerry on GA cutting his down earlier :lol:
