Telling Garden Vegetables Apart … How?

Please answer this question … What’s the difference between leafy veggies, flower veggies, root veggies, and fruit veggies?

Leafy vegetables include “leaf-type” vegetables such as cabbage, chard, kale, lettuce and spinach, whose leaves are edible.

“Flower-type” vegetables are ones such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower, whose “flower” is eaten instead of leaves.

“Root-type” vegetables are those such as beets, carrots, radishes and turnips, whose roots are the edible part of the plant.

“Fruit vegetables” are botanically fruits but treated as vegetables in a culinary sense. These include tomatoes, peppers, and squashes.

Now you are fully equipped to “enlighten” friends with this incredible information when you find yourself at a loss for subject matter at the next dinner party you attend.
