What is this???




Please let me know if you know. I think it is edible....it came out of our garden. It is about 100x bigger than any of our carrots.

I think it is a giants nubby maturing finger. I hear they have to grow their body parts back when the accidentally bite them off while fighting or stuffing their faces. Just think, a giant bites his/her finger off while helping itself to your garden and suspects all is well and plants it their to grow back. You know, it happens all the time. Just you wait until the giant finds out it was you who pulled up its finger before it fully matured. OH and if your thinking about eating it... i don't think you'd better.

It looks like a rutabaga.

If it were a little more brown, I would say it looks like mandioca, Argentia's version of a potato.
What does it taste like?

It looks like a geoduck. Except for the fact it came out of a garden. Geoducks are more seafood than rabbit food. Good luck with that.

it tasted like a tasteless root vegetable. i liked it. im wondering if a parsnip snuck into the carrot seeds....or a giant's toe.......im not dead from eating it anyways. thanks for the vegetable education!

It's a mandrake. No doubt about it: http://ullam.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2008/07/20/mandrake_lg_3.jpg

Okay, maybe not. It could be a parsnip, although it doesn't quite look bulbous enough at the top... my vote is a mutated white radish or a sickly, mal-nourished carrot.

mandrake....yikes! do those things live in tunnels underground??? Im going with the malnourished sickly carrot.

By the way, I found out what this is. It's a daikon, which is an Asian-style radish. Perhaps when you planted whatever you planted, a daikon seed happened to be in there.
