Some vegetables that start with the letter D are daikon, dasheen, dandelion and dill. Daikon is also known as winter radish, and dasheen is sometimes called eddo or taro.
These vegetables have a variety of uses. Cultivated varieties of dandelion make excellent cooking greens, and the tops are also used in salads. Dasheen is grown for its edible underground parts, which can be used similarly to a potato. Dasheen leaves must be specially cooked and drained before consuming. Dill is a member of the parsley family, and it is commonly used for pickling and flavoring. Daikon originated in Asia. It is usually cooked rather than eaten fresh.
