Vegetables List A – Z

Vegetables :

  • Vegetable is any part of a plant that is consumed by humans as food as part of a savory meal i.e. any plant, part (roots, tubers, bulbs, corms, stems, leaf stems, leaf sheaths, leaves, buds, flowers, fruits and seeds) of which is used for food.
  • A more precise definition is “any plant part consumed for food that is not a fruit or seed, but including mature fruits that are eaten as part of a main meal”.
  • The original meaning of the word vegetable, still used in biology, was to describe all types of plant, as in the terms “vegetable kingdom” and “vegetable matter”.
  • Falling outside these definitions are edible fungi (such as mushrooms) and edible seaweed which, although not parts of plants, are often treated as vegetables.
  • In everyday language, the words “fruit” and “vegetable” are mutually exclusive. “Fruit” has a precise botanical meaning, being a part that developed from the ovary of a flowering plant. This is considerably different from the word’s culinary meaning. While peaches, plums, and oranges are “fruit” in both senses, many items commonly called “vegetables”, such as eggplants, bell peppers and tomatoes, are botanically fruits.
  • Vegetables can be eaten either raw or cooked and play an important role in human nutrition, being mostly low in fat and carbohydrates, but high in vitamins, minerals and fiber.
