        Supermarket Botany

        Supermarket foods like carrots, asparagus, lettuce, oranges, and peanuts are actually edible roots, stems, leaves, fruits, flowers, or seeds. Can you eat the stem, root, or seed of a plant? Test your knowledge by identifying everyday foods as plant parts, with this interactive activity adapted from the Missouri Botanical Garden and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
