Twelve states have an official State Vegetable, Minnesota is not one of them (neither is Wisconsin, Iowa, or either one of the Dakotas). Let's change that today. What do you think Minnesota's official State Vegetable should be?

The twelve that do are: Arkansas (South Arkansas vine ripe tomato), Georgia (sweet Vidalia onion), Louisiana (Sweet potato), Idaho (potato), New Hampshire (White potato), New Mexico (Chile), North Carolina (Sweet potato), Oklahoma (Watermelon), South Carolina, (Collard greens), Texas (Sweet onion), Utah (Spanish sweet onion), Washington (Walla Walla sweet onion).

Not to poke too much fun at the South (Arkansas), but isn't the tomato a fruit?

Here are the suggestions so far this morning:

  • Pete:  Sweet corn
  • Cindy:  Sugar beet
  • Jim:  Corn
  • Dick:  Corn
  • Tammy:  Carrots
  • Zac:  Corn
  • Sara:  Radish
  • Larry:  Sugar beet
  • Jesse:  Corn
  • Misty:  Corn
  • Chris:  Sweet corn
