How does Taro propagate?
Taro is propagated vegetatively, and headsetts (sometimes called tops), or large suckers are the best planting materials. These contain the apical bud and have rapid early growth and a high rate of survival.
Does taro grow in USA?
Taro grows best in USDA zones 9-11. Taro can be grown for its tubers only where summers are long–at least 200 frost-free, warm days. Taro can be grown for its leaves in a greenhouse.
What part of Taro reproduces?
Taro is propagated from a shoot/head sett usually with a small piece of the corm (swollen stem) attached at the base (Fig. 1; Lebot, 2009).
