Edible Plants icon Vegetables and Other Edible Plants
bar graphic

Plants with edible parts (fruits, flowers, foliage, seeds, roots) are given this symbol. See the list of recommended books at the bottom of the page to learn more about growing fruit, nuts, vegetables and edible plants. Floridata profiles almost all of your favorite vegetables (tomatos, peppers, garlic, etc.); herbs (parsley, sage, rosemary and etc.); and many unusual species (orach, water chestnut, pomegranate, etc.). We've also included plants that you can eat although you probably don't want too - like kudzu vine!.
