The grievance reached the ears of a taro fairy, who lived in the Pangu mountain in the middle reaches of the Minjiang River in Fujian Province. He had white hair and a childlike face. After hearing the news, he came to Lipu and sowed taro seeds in the fertile soil at the foot of the Guandi temple in the county (near the three small schools in Licheng county). This year, the taro harvest was abundant, and the hungry people used taro as food to spend the famine years. Since then, Lipu Taro has gradually become a specialty of Lipu people. Lipu Taro belongs to Araceae, also known as Kui taro and betel nut taro. It was originally a wild taro. It is an excellent variety formed through long-term natural selection and artificial breeding of wild taro. It has been artificially cultivated in Lipu County for 400 years
