Taro Root

Taro root, one of the world’s oldest cultivated plants also known as Dasheen, is a starchy tuber vegetable, commonly used in many tropical cuisines.

It has a mild, slightly sweet, nutty flavor that is similar to a potato or a sweet potato. The texture of taro root can vary depending on how it is prepared, but it is generally starchy and slightly fibrous. When cooked, it can be soft and creamy, adding a delightful bite to dishes.

We take pride in providing organic produce that is free from harmful chemicals, herbicides, or pesticides. Our produce is carefully hand-picked and packed on the same day of delivery to ensure optimal freshness, flavor, and nutritional value.

Raw taro is toxic due to the high levels of calcium oxalate, so you must cook it for consumption.

Before cooking, it is important to peel the outer skin of the taro root and remove any fibrous parts. It can be prepared in many ways, including boiled, steamed, roasted, sliced, or diced into smaller pieces and fried, or mashed.
