This is the category for all of your traditional, and unusual, vegetables. We have, however, included many flowers that you may be surprised to find amongst the 'edibles'. Some are becoming more mainstream; dandelion salad leaves have been rediscovered and are currently the height of fashion. Others have become less fashionable over time such as throwing Calendula (Marigold) petals into your soups or stews for a little extra colour and flavour.
We call an onion an onion. For the veg we have stuck with the 'common' name. You will find 'Cabbages' under 'C-D', and never need to know that they are botanically known as Brassica oleracea. The main reason for this is that, unlike flowers, we hardly ever use the latin for vegetables. The confusion caused by 'common names' doesn't seem to apply to our daily fodder in the same way. Of course, you can still use the search box above, for example if you are an American looking for rutabaga (we call it swede by the way).
