I promise no naughty pictures. But here's an example of a wonderful nano-photograph. Anyone guess what it is?

Cross section of a tiny plant stem: a rose, perhaps.

So, if it's not a stem, then a freshly cut root, bulb or tuber?

I've changed my mind back to thinking it is a stem. I don't think it is a rose stem - I've cut way too many and they don't look like that.

Something fast growing and not as woody given the look of the xylem.

Ok, now it's 20 questions time.
Is it an edible?

Ok, hints: It's edible. It's commonly found in many many kitchens & is readily available year round in grocery stores. It's highly nutrious and delicious. It's something that you can eat raw or cooked. Both adults & children love it. This is a natural thing, not man-made. They come in a variety of sizes but usually one of 3 colors is desirable, although all 3 forms of the coloration is edible.

Is the part shown the edible part?
I'm guessing it's not.

Tabby - actually it is the edible part! And the non-edible part. Actually, from what I've heard, the whole thing is edible.

If it were misspelled could you find it in my roof? Could it be a leek?


No, wait. It's nutritious? I give up.

Leeks are very nutritious & make a wonderful soup. But no, it's not that.

Another hint: Look at the color. How many edible things are that color?
