Abstract: Taro is a tropical root crop grown in Hawaii with a promising future. Now, the potential of taro has been under-estimated. This presentation reviews briefly (a) the cultural practices in Hawaii, (b) the availability of taro-based products, (c) other available technologies in processing taro, (d) problems involved in processing taro, (e) some prospective taro products, and (f) some recommendations to make taro the star of agri-business in Hawaii and the Pacific.
