         Indonesia is the world's largest archipelago, literally thousand of islands ranging from those among the world's largest to tiny coral atolls marooned in a  sapphire sea.  With terrain including snow-capped mountains and lush rainforests arid savannah, swamps and irrigated rice fields, it's hard to imagine a more appropriate national motto than Bhinneka Tunggal Ika - Unity in Diversity.

        Vegetables are grown throughout Indonesia, especially in islands with rich volcanic soil.   In this page, some of the vegetables in Indonesia will be introduced and you can learn the names and prononciations of the vegetables in Indonesian Language.  There are some short Indonesian passages about the selling of vegetables in the market and a few quizzes which will test your understanding of the vegetables.
