ABC Wednesday- X
Xanthosoma sagittifolium is similar to Colacasia. The plant has very large, dark leaves.It can be grown in dappled shade . Its leaves are used to make a delicious dish called Patrode. The tubers are dried and powdered, and used in the place of wheat flour by those who are allergic to wheat.The leaves and tubers should be used only after careful preparation, because they might cause severe allergic reactions.
I thank the team of ABC Wednesday for hosting this interesting meme.
