Product Information

Arvee corms widely vary in size from small to large, depending on the specific variety, and have a round, elongated, to irregularly bulbous shape. The skin is rough, firm, ridged, and ranges in color from light to dark brown with patches of fibrous hairs. Underneath the surface, the flesh is dense, crisp, slightly sticky, and white. Arvee must be cooked before consumption as it is toxic when raw and can irritate the throat and mouth. Once cooked, the flesh softens, developing a starchy consistency similar to potatoes, and has a mild, nutty, and sweet flavor.

Arvee, botanically classified as Colocasia esculenta, is a tropical plant that is considered to be one of the oldest vegetables of the Indian subcontinent and belongs to the Araceae family. There are many different varieties generally labeled under Arvee in local markets, and both the corms and the leaves are edible once cooked. Arvee is also known as Indian Taro, Arvi, Arbi, Sivapan-kizhangu, and Colocasia, which is a short form of its botanical name. In India, Arvee corms are primarily used as a filling, starchy element in culinary dishes and are a common substitute for potatoes. The leaves are also a widely used ingredient, cooked in soups, curries, and rice dishes.
