I am after a pink variety of Taro to buy and plant, Talo Niue, Talo ni Samoa are some of the names it can go by. Does anyone know where I can buy a tuber from?

Hi Manu, plenty of Talo Niue Growers up in Far North Queensland. There are Samoan taro growers selling that particular cultivar at Cairns Rusty's Market every Saturday & Sunday.
