A colloquium of colocasias

We harvested a bed of colocasia (shepankizhangu/ arbi/ taro) today. I love this tuber vegetable, and its leaves too, that you can make into delicious patrode, west-coast style.But the best thing about them is their funny, whiskery faces. Really makes you think how nature repeats her designs in unexpected ways and places. Look at these tubers, probably the ancestors of a variety of creatures, from octopus to god’elpus.
