    What is this vegetable?

    Nice article on Huffington Post about under-appreciated produce. Great for those who are trying to incorporate some different fruits and veggies into their diet after getting tired of the same ol'. Cheers to farmers' market season!

    It might be a tomatillo, the transparent outer area is removed, the fruit is inside. However I haven't seen that much outer "husk" before so I'm not 100%.

    oh, there's a slideshow. they should've shown the purple kohlrabi. i grew those in my garden a few years ago, quite tasty if you don't let them get big.

    I read that as "scabies". Doesn't sound tasty at all!

    +1. My grandmother used to grow them. I actually saw them at a farmer's market last summer and bought a container. Unfortunately, not quite ripe, so not as tasty as they should have been.

    Upon googling, I see ground cherries are also known as "Cape gooseberries", so I guess those saying "gooseberry" are right too!

    that first thing (with the paper case, not quite ripe) is a gooseberry absolutely delicious! in season now in Australia and ripening on the bush at my front gate as I type. Of course, with 3 other family members who enjoy them, they're not something we get to eat lots of

    I love watercress. There is a canyon in Malibu, near Neptunes Net, a live seafood store, where it grows wild. Makes for a great picnic.
