Also called eddoe, this species is native to China and Japan. It can grow in cooler and drier climates, which makes it a suitable crop in parts of North America. The corms are generally smaller and rounder resembling a striped, hairy potato. The flavor of the leaves and corms are a little acrid and the flesh a bit slippery when cutting into.
