      And, what other "greens" are grown in CR ...other than cabbage? Haven't
      found much in my visits.

        It's the common spinach sold everywhere in farmer's markets
        and super markets. It's a different plant than the northern
        spinach. Other greens? Well, kale & a number of chinese
        type greens. Chinese "cabbage" is very cheap and good in
        salads, having a very long shelf life (refrigerated).
        There's watercress but be careful of such as it is almost
        always grown in contaminated water and thus must be well
        treated. Then brocolli is very common.

        This is, of course, a botanical course. If you don't
        believe it wait until you get the pop quiz tomorrow!
