Colocasia esculenta is a tropical plant grown primarily for its edible corms, the root vegetables most commonly known as taro (/ˈtɑːroʊ, ˈtæroʊ/). It is the most widely cultivated species of several plants in the Araceae family which are used as vegetables for their corms, leaves, and petioles. Taro corms are a food staple in African, Oceanic and South Asian cultures, and taro is believed to have been one of the earliest cultivated plants.

I keep getting this one wrong because I'm not used to saying taro at all lol. It always immediately translates as "Is this kalo?" So I write "kalo" without translating it.

Just a funny thought :)
