    Rhubarb is one of them. Carole guessed the other one–which was–Artichokes.

    There are many of the solanaceous crops, such as tomato and pepper, that can be perennials given the right variety and a tropical climate; and horseradish and several herbs might be called vegetables as well. So do not be surprised if you hear other answers.

    Paul and Carole, you are today’s winner.
