Above-ground parts All parts of a plant growing above ground.
Bulb A mass of overlapping membranous or fleshy leaves on a short stem base enclosing one or more buds that may develop under suitable conditions into new plants and constituting the resting stage of many plants, such as the onion.
Fruit Ripened ovary of a seed-bearing plant.
Leaf An above-ground plant organ specialized for photosynthesis.
Pod A structure that contains the seeds or flowers of a plant (eg. seed pod, flower pod)
Root That portion of the plant axis lacking nodes and leaves and usually found below the ground.
Tuber A short, thick, usually but not always subterranean stem or branch bearing buds or "eyes" and serving as a storage organ, as in the potato.
Peeled cloves Free of their papery skin.
Rhizome A horizontal plant stem, growing beneath the surface, and usually covered with dormant buds, as in fresh ginger
Inflorescence The mode of arrangement of the flowers on a plant; the flowering part of a plant; the coming into flower of a plant.
Ear Fruit including the leaf, rachis, peduncle, pistillate flowers, and silks in the case of corn.
Corm Underground stem, such as that of the taro, similar to a bulb but without the scales. A solid swollen part of a stem, usually subterranean, as the so-called "bulb" of Crocus and Gladiolus.
Palm heart The edible, white, inner portion of the stem and growing bud of palm trees.
Nut A hard shelled, woody-textured, one-celled fruit that does not split open (e.g. acorn, coconut, or macadamia nut).
Gall A large swelling on plant tissues caused by the invasion of parasites, such as fungi or bacteria, following puncture by an insect.
