Common German vegetables you may have never eaten before

Navigating a German supermarket can be tricky for newcomers to the country. Germans love these tasty vegetables, but - depending on where you come from - you might not even recognize them.

September 3 marks the Day of the Vegetable in Germany. In a country best known for sausage and beer, a daily dose of vitamins becomes all the more important - and German cuisine employs a huge variety of them.
