We have smooth, white or yellow skin with pale green to green flesh. We're about 15-20cm in diameter, and round to oval in shape. Our flesh, contained by the thin, firm skin or rind, is moist, sweet and succulent with seeds in the centre.
I'm a pineapple from sunny Queensland. Although we look like a rough, spiky, pine cone we're really a group of smaller fruits that have fused together around a central core, that contain juicy, slightly fibrous segments
We consist of a collection of tiny fruits, each with its own seed covered in red skin and flesh, which form a helmet-shaped cluster around a small stem. When harvested the cluster comes away from the stem leaving a hollow in the centre.
Now there are other berries in this world but admit it, we’re the best – sweet, succulent, easy to eat – no other berry is as good as us. It’s true that we’re similar to raspberries and blackberries.
We're actually very tasty and so nutritious no one can afford to exclude us from their diet. We grow on rounded bushes (bush beans) which support themselves or on climbing plants.
We capsicums are closely related to hot chillies, but we're sweeter tasting and not at all hot to eat. Most of us are glossy, smooth-skinned, and blocky.
Sometimes called bunch celery we consist of a group of pale green, succulent stems with thick, white bases which are joined at the bottom of the stalks to a crown at ground level. Our stems are ‘U' shaped with slight furrows
We're related to the melons, pumpkins and squash but we have our individual style. We're usually torpedo-shaped with green to dark green or white skin surrounding a whitish edible pulp containing seeds.
We eggplants grow on a bush that produces variously shaped fruit over a long period of time. Our most common type is the glossy, smooth skinned, tear drop-shaped eggplant which has dark purplish satin-like skin.
We've been enjoyed for thousands of years. One of the world's most popular salad vegetables, we come in many shapes, sizes and colours. There are four main types in Australia, all of which are widely grown.
We're white cultivated mushrooms and our edible part is our fruiting body which produces spores. We're the most commonly sold mushroom and consist of an umbrella-like head.
We have a long and distinguished history. If left to mature on the tree we turn dark purple to black. Inside we have a large, egg-shaped seed with pointed sharp ends. Our meaty flesh is inedible until properly pickled.
We're a bulb formed from the bases of our leaves. The most common being round to oval-shaped and slightly smaller than a tennis ball.
Peas to meet you! We grow on a climbing plant that produces pods containing seeds or peas. We're sold in the pod and either eaten whole or we're removed from the inedible pod before eating.
We consist of small, medium to bright green, thick, soft, oval to arrow-shaped leaves and green stems, both of which are eaten. Our leaves form rose-like clusters or rosettes from which our flowering shoot emerges.
We're a vegetable and part of a large family related to pumpkins, cucumbers and melons. We come in all sizes, shapes and colours, which makes us a very interesting family of vegetables.
