View Full Version : What is this?

Hi, does anyone know what these are?
We allow these to grow in our gardens, any guesses?

Not sure, sorry. We have found the berry type plant in our garden as well.

Awwweeee, I was hoping for guesses.
The yellow flowers and the pale green pods are from the same plant, I bet you have some of the original plant in your fridge right now, it is a white food.
the black berries, you DON'T want to eat, but many other types of this same species (but different variety) you probably eat on a daily basis.
Come, on, give it a guess. :o)

I am taking a guess: looks like a bean or some sort..

Good guess, but nope,
The flowers and the pods are not what you eat, although you CAN eat them if you like, you probably have never seen these, unless you have a garden.
The black one DO NOT EAT, they are poisonous, but their cousins we eat all the time, every day, in alot of ways.

Okay another hint, the flowers and pods from from the bassicas family
The black berries are from the nightshade family.

The flowers look like zuchinni flowers to me. The berries look like either currants or marionberries. Not sure about the plant though.
Do I win anything or am I the big loser....
P.S. for science we planted a bunch of seeds and now we have little plants but we forgot to label them so we'll be playing the guessing game in our house too.

Okay, hey at least I had two people who actually tried this.
The flowers are cauliflower flowerettes that have bloomed, and then the pods are what they do when they go to seed, just like mustard greens, and radishes, etc, these little pods have a bunch of seeds inside them, you can then plant them next spring.
The black berries, are Bella Donna, and are highly poisonous to humans.
Don't even ask me why Dragggon grows these.

belladonna is an incredible homeopathic remedy!

POOH! I wish I saw this game earlier! I actually did know the cauliflower (since we've grown it), but I wouldn't have guessed the bella donna in a trillion years.

We always let some of our plants go to seed, so we have seed for the next year, this keeps our garden costs way down
only takes a bit to let them go to seed
then hang them up to dry
then gather the seeds
then label in envelopes
then tuck away for next year
Of course, it's so easy for me, all I do is label the envelopes, Dragggon does all the hard work around here. LOL

I was going to guess cauliflower! I had no idea about the berries. Your hint about the "brassicas" family (and that it was white) gave it away to me....that was fun....can we play again, can we please, can we huh?? :D
11-05-2005, 03:56 PM
YES, kids we can play again.
Dragggon will take some more pics when he goes out to "play" in our gardens.
do not hold your breath, as it is raining very hard here, and he doesn't want to take the camera out in the rain, but in the next coupla' daze for sure.
