I photographed delicate young taro plants pushing up from the ground in Japan and framed them with the rich green grass from a French lawn. Taro leaves are known to offer many health benefits as they are rich in vitamins C and A, and help prevent eye disease and anemia, reduce cholesterol, control blood pressure, reduce wrinkly skin, and increase sperm production.
Young taro plants and stems can only be eaten after boiling twice to remove the acrid flavor.
