It may be cultural, but nobody in our family seems to be able to identify the green vegetable on the right of the A-3013 wooden puzzle (made in China).


Note that not everything is a vegetable on the board, but we were able to identify:

white radish, carrot, corn, potatoes,
broccoli, tomato, ?,
pumpkin, eggplant, fennel, mushrooms

I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that it's meant to be either artichoke...


Or, more likely, bamboo shoot

bamboo shoots

By the way, I think the one you suggested could be fennel is more likely to be pak choi :)

White radish (mooli) looks like this:


So the white thing top left may perhaps be kohlrabi or just an ordinary turnip


  • Bamboo! That must be bamboo, and that explains why we never saw any before. Thank you for the potential alternatives to white radish and fennel.

  • @Cœur yeah! The bamboo shoots we get in a can here look pretty much nothing like that. And TIL globe artichoke is a thistle. Thanks for the question ^_^
