Vegetables Category

 

 

Vegetables is a catch-all category that includes many of the edible parts of a plant, like stems, roots, flowers, and leaves.  We don't usually consider the fruits of a plant to be vegetables, except for fruits that aren't very sweet.  Tomatoes, squash, peppers, eggplants, and beans, for example, are all fruits, but we usually refer to them as vegetables.
