Shakespearean vegetables

This is the sort of thing I do to entertain myself while eating lunch...

Juliet tomato

Romeo pepper

Bianca pepper

Ophelia eggplant

Beatrice eggplant




















And I suppose King Richard leeks, if we're going to get into the history plays.

Ah! And also Falstaff brussels sprouts.

Anyone else have candidates to add?  (I might actually do the Romeo and Juliet thing.)

  3. How about Ophelia Okra? Fruits early and has a very short season. DON'T OVERWATER!
