The Eddo is a starchy root of a tropical plant of the same name. It has a hard brown hairy skin and is therefore reminiscent of a coconut. (This root is poisonous when consumed raw in large quantities, but when cooked these harmful substances disappear). After cooking, the eddo is similar in structure to a potato but has more of a delicious nutty taste.
