They are an edible version of elephant ear and a staple in Polonisia. It is what poi is made of (it really does taste like chalk). Taro isn't too bad - it's boiled like potatos or green bananas. A neighbor grew them in a field next to me, and he said the important thing was not to disturb them for about a year. But it may be too cold to grow very well in Britain. Put the tuber just below the surface.
