What unusual vegetables should I grow that I've never heard of?

I grow that. I don’t think the citrus one is in my country.

It can be rather invasive here so is best to grow in a container. Mine smells like a dirty fish. It tastes ok cooked and is useful in Vietnamese cooking, and the tea tastes nice, but the smell, wow. Such a powerful smell.

It sounds fabulous. I would like to grow it, but in a very large pot. If not, it would take over all of my gardens. Cannot wait to use it! Thank you!.

This is interesting… how one person can be repulsed by a certain scent and someone else enjoy it. I quite like the fishy smell but my mother is completely off put by it. I’m going to divide my potted plant and put half in an isolated garden spot. This may be a mistake, or feedback, but I’m willing to see how it goes.

Has anybody grown Asian winged beans? Below is a link if you don’t know what it is. I’ve eaten it but never grown it. I’m going to buy it from Baker Creek for 2019.

These cape gooseberrys have been sitting at room temp. Since October in their husk. On a paper plate,still good flavor, some dried up, others are still good…not a very big crop this year , but the ones I ate in late summer had an excellent flavor. May need to start earlier . They keep a long time, if you don’t eat them all first


These are kind of small, some were bigger
