The nation’s favorite vegetables are Taiwanese cabbage, yam leaves and bok choy. These are the results of the “Stars of Taiwanese dishes and cooking” online poll, released in Taipei on Wednesday. The survey, which collected opinions on the six major food categories, was organized by the Taiwan Millennium Health Foundation, the Health Promotion Administration (HPA) and the Council of Agriculture.
Taiwan’s most popular fruits were bananas, dragon fruit and Asian pear. Garlic was the least favorite in the “vegetables” group, followed by brown-cap white mushrooms (Hypsizygus marmoreus) and Okinawa spinach, while durian was the least popular fruit.
