What is a Malanga?
Brief and Straightforward Guide: What is a Malanga? ... Malanga is a brown, hairy tuber in the Arum family which is cultivated in many tropical regions around the world. It is closely related to taro, although the two plants are found in different genera.

Malanga
Malanga (Cuba), yauta (Puerto Rico), tannia (English West Indies), cocoyam, coco, tanier, lila, taro (names overlap with other similar tubers); (Xanthosoma sp. -- Family Araceae) ... Many malanga cormels are elongated and tapered, bumpy and crumply, with shaggy, scaly skin that does not quite cover the flesh.

I think I'd be able to find this item in a Latin American market.

You probably will not be tempted to, but you should not eat this plant raw.  The plant contains a chemical that is harmful to the human body and it is important to heat it to destroy the chemical.
