"It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in the Autumn." - B.C. Forbes
Root crops are grown for their edible roots or tubers and include Carrots, Onions, Parsnips, Radishes and Leeks. Tubers can be used fresh in salads, cooked or pickled. The tops (or greens) of many roots are also edible.
