Re: Vegetables and fruits that we have forgotten about....

I almost always get reactions from cashiers when I go to regular grocery stores because they are not used to seeing either so much fresh produce or some specific item that I would buy but their average customer probably wouldn't. I have to tell them things like, "It's a rutabaga. I'm making Cornish pasties." Usually I rather enjoy this and try to take the opportunity to say things like. "More people should try celery root. It has such a lovely mild flavor that most everyone likes if they try it."

This year I am going to try to grow both rutabagas and celery root. We shall see if I manage to get any good results. Last year's celery-root-from-seed-attempts never produced anything for me.

Re: Vegetables and fruits that we have forgotten about....

My vote is for the kohl rabi. According to wiki, it's in the same family of vegetables as kale, broccoli and cabbage. Personally, I think they look quite strange, which was why I planted a few in my garden. When they plumped out nicely, I sliced one up and ate it raw in a salad. What a pleasant tasting vegetable! It's got such a nice fragrance to it...and yes the taste kinda does remind me of broccoli. I'll be planting more in the garden again!
