There’s no such thing as vegetables – Sci Code

Botanically-speaking, the “veggies” that we’re eating are way more interesting and diverse than we usually give them credit for. A carrot is a root, broccoli is a flower, spinach is a leaf, asparagus are stems, potatoes are stem tubers, sweet potatoes are root tubers, snow peas are legumes, and tomatoes, avocados, cucumbers, pumpkins, and so many other veggies that we call veggies are all kinds of fruit. Vegetable is a culinary term.

SCI CODE’s Coma Niddy (Mike Wilson) explains why there’s no such thing as vegetables.

In the archives: more, um… vegetables.
