Re: Colocasias on the move

I brought 6 eddoes around 2 weeks ago and 3 now have green shoots showing.

Re: Tesco Eddoe survived winter planted out!

Tesco eddoes came through well for many members in winter 2007/8 but need to be well drained if cold.

Re: DRY DRY storing colocasia Survey INFO pros/pitfalls etc

... you will have a tuber like I have in 1. That is all I can really attribute to the larger tubers. Those Mojitos are about the size of your average eddoes you all buy from the market.
