Elephant Ears

The Hawaiian taro fields (kalo lo’i) of Hanalei are one the main sources of cultivation for Hawaii’s favorite starch, the taro (kalo) root. This respected plant can be prepared many ways and is eaten in its entirety. The lo’í or irrigated terrace is the vast paddy that feeds and nurtures the kalo. These colorful paddy’s are harvested year around and the taro farmers work relentlessly in knee deep mud and battle such enemies and apple snails and droughts to maintain lush productive fields.
