Hawaiian edible Kalo (Taro) leaves, root, and stems for excellent source of beneficial health benefits

Home Grown Kalo

Stem of the taro also edible

These Kalo (taro) are grown in my garden, They are so good for everything.  Stems, leaves, and root and edible and very nutritious. In Hawaii, we make lau laus. Its pork but wrapped with taro leaves, and ti leaves. Then steamed, or cook into an imu for over 6 hours. The wait is so worth it, one of my favorite foods to eat. Stems and root could be cooked into a stew with beef, chicken, pork or veggies.

Kalo (Taro) root is an excellent source of dietary fiber and good carbohydrates, which both improve the function of your digestive system and can contribute to healthy weight loss. Its high levels of vitamin C, vitamin B6, and vitamin E also help to maintain a healthy immune system and may eliminate free radicals.
