Vegetable Dictionary

We know that when you buy from us, you might be exposed to vegetables you’ve never seen in your wildest dreams. Our Vegetable Dictionary is the resource you need to turn your perplexity into excitement! In addition to lesser-known vegetables, we’ve included the usual suspects in case you’re looking for some dinner-table inspiration or a new twist on classic recipes. We’ve found that sometimes, when someone dislikes a vegetable, they’ve either never had the fresh-from-the-field-picked-that-morning version, or they’ve never tried it prepared to their liking. We urge you to experiment and keep your palate open to new flavors! Simply click on the vegetable you’d like to know more about.
