Looks like Tara a tropical plant grown primarily as a vegetable food, for it's edible corm and secondly as a leaf vegetable. Also related to Xanthosoma and Caladium and like them sometimes loosely called Elephant ear.

It's dasheen or callaloo.
Callaloo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And, it's used to make callaloo:
Visual Recipes - Crab & Callaloo Recipe

Phinz got it right first! It is also called taro, so getouttamykitchen was right too.

O.K. I didn't want to keep everyone waiting any longer. This is a 15 years old photo. What I need to know is where is the handsome stranger (DH) standing, what city/town and state. Good Luck!
