Angelica keiskei, commonly known under the Japanese name of Ashitaba is a not frost tender perennial plant from the angelica genus with an average growth height of 50–120 cm. Traditionally it is seen as a major contributor to the supposedly healthier, extended lives of the local residents, something that may be based on its substantial levels of vitamins.
Common salsify (Tragopogon porrifolius) also called "Oyster plant", "Vegetable oyster" or "Jerusalem star" is a plant of the Asteraceae family, cultivated for its root eaten as a vegetable. Today, salsify is practically no longer cultivated. Salsify sold in markets is often the salsify (Scorzonera hispanica).
Sium sisarum (skirret, crummock) is a perennial plant of the family Apiaceae sometimes grown as a root vegetable. It has a cluster of sweet, bright white roots which are similar to sweet potatoes, but longer (15-20 cm). Skirrets may be boiled, stewed, or roasted. The woody core is inedible, and should be removed before cooking because it is difficult to remove after.
