Taro in Full Bloom

With broad leaf as backdrop and full dressing at bloom this is more portrait than typologic.
Taro was most likely native to Indonesia, now widely cultivated from India to Spain. Arvi, as it’s named in India is thought to have arrived there about 5000 BC. The leaves are high in oxalic acid which is steamed or boiled away. It is a very common dish in many cultures, except ours.
