Mr. Giant Plants in Florida!......LOL.....That is a good one Mike!.....


I am referring to the Costa Rican Malanga Lila (Purple Malanga)!.....I usually get them down here in Florida, on Sundays at The Organic/Wholesale Food Market Place!....





Scientific Name: Xanthosoma Sagittifolium

An herbaceous perennial plant. It has underground stem, from which sprout swollen, lateral and horizontal shoots, known as cormels. It is oriented to human consumption. The corms are used for human and animal food, thanks to its nutritional content. A countless number of dishes are prepared with it, such as: soft drinks, beverages, soups, pastas, salads, sweets, breads, cakes, cookies and ice-cream.....


A very nutritious food!....

Malanga.

I picked mine up at the market and have grown them ever since for the awesome tropical foliage.
Never have eaten them though.

Easy to grow and overwinter in containers in zone 5/6.

Btw your plants are beasts....Looking good.
Waiting for " New corms #3"

.This is a malanga repot carnage photo......I should eat them instead of repotting them.
For Sunday breakfast I might make Goetta, eggs and hash browns( shredded malanga) and toast.

Can you smoke them?

Thank you Mike!.....Just trying to do my best with the plants!....


"Waiting for "New Corms #3!".......hahahahahaha!.....LOL!.....


Ummm!.....Yummmy!...That sounds like a awesome Sunday breakfast!.....


Don't know about smoke them, tho!.....I have never tried!....


I have been eating Malanga since I was a child!.....My mom used to boil them first, then peel them, cut them in chunks and blend them with milk, a little bit of honey and liquid vanilla flavor!......What a refreshing, very nutritious milkshake!....Now you got me hungry!.....

Started some Thai Giant Elephant Ear seeds today. Some where last years '16 and some '17 (I guess that is last year now). We will see if any of these.



Will become these.
