List of Vegetables: 701 Veggie Names Around the World 🥕🌽

An illustration of a variety of vegetables laid out on a table

Whether you’re looking for a delicious new vegetable to try, you’re a teacher looking for a great classroom resource, you care about protecting vegetable species around the planet, or you’re simply practicing for a food-themed trivia night — we’ve got you covered with the ultimate vegetable resource.

Vegetables are commonly identified as the edible parts of plants, which can include roots, stems, leaves, flowers, and sometimes immature fruits. They encompass a wide range of flavors, from earthy and bitter to mild and savory. Vegetables are nature’s nourishment, offering a rich source of nutrients, ready to be incorporated into a myriad of dishes.

And sure, we’ve all heard of arugula, broccoli, and zucchini — but what about kohlrabi, romanesco, and salsify?

We’ve collected the ultimate list (truly, it might just be the largest on the internet) of vegetable names — from A to Z — so you can explore every kind of fruit imaginable.

Why did we write this article? Because a plant-based diet is better for animals and the planet. And because choosing to eat (and pick) seasonal fruits and vegetables can make a world of difference as well. And lastly, because it’s valuable to know about the beautiful range of (yummy) plants on planet Earth so we can fight to protect their biodiversity

You can also explore our complete list of fruits from A-Z.

We hope you discover something new — and maybe even share your newfound favorite vegetable with a friend. 

A quick note before you bite into a new-found veggie: Some of these vegetables cannot be consumed raw — and others could easily be confused with non-edible plants. Please use caution and care.
