About 1,700 years ago, the Polynesians traveled to Hawaii, bringing with them 27 types of plants to cultivate in their new settlement. These plants are traditionally known as the Canoe Plants. One of these 27 was Taro, in which both the roots and leaves are edible.

It is still highly cultivated in Hawaii today, and is used to form Poi by mashing the corm in water to form a paste. I think Poi must be an acquired taste, to me it seemed like something you might use to hang wallpaper.
