Type of plants

Vegetable Plants
Vegetable plants can be consumed raw, some may be eaten cooked, and some must be cooked in order to be edible. Vegetable plants are most often cooked with salty dishes. However, a few vegetables are often used in desserts and other sweet dishes, such as rhubarb pie and carrot cake.

Edible Plants
 Edible plants includes plants with parts that are safely edible by humans. The edible parts were obtained equally from wild plants and cultivated plants. A total of 28 species were eaten cooked compared to 23 species eaten raw. It is important not only to record such native knowledge and conduct further studies but also to take steps to conserve the genetic diversity of edible plants before they are lost to human kind forever.

Herb Plants

Herb plants are plants with leaves, seeds, or flowers used for flavouring, food, medicine, perfume or a part of a plant used in cooking. Herbs have a variety of uses including culinary, medicinal, and in some cases spiritual usage. General usage differs between culinary herbs and medicinal herbs. Herb plants include the part of leaves, roots, flowers, seeds, resin, root bark, inner bark, berries and sometimes the pericarp or other portions of the plant. 

Nut and Seed Plants

Nuts are an important source of nutrients for both humans and wildlife. Nuts are a composite of the seed and the fruit, where the fruit does not open to release the seed. Most seeds come from fruits, and the seeds are free of the fruit, unlike nuts such as hazelnuts, hickories, chestnuts and acorns, which have a stony fruit wall and originate from a compound ovary. Culinary usage of the term is less restrictive, and some nuts as defined in food preparation. 

Spice Plants

 A Spice Plant is a kind of tree that returns Allspice when harvested. The higher Gardening skill the player has, the more Allspice will be obtained. They can be found in Shimla, Mirch, Chakra Phool and Jethimadh. Spice Plants can also be planted in a patch in your house's backyard with a Spice Plant Bean.

Aquatic Plant

Aquatic plants are plants that have adapted to living in aquatic environments (saltwater or freshwater). These plants require special adaptations for living submerged in water, or at the water's surface. Aquatic plants can only grow in water or in soil that is permanently saturated with water. Aquatic vascular plants can be ferns or angiosperms.

Toxic Plants

Most poisonous plants have an unpleasant taste that animals avoid if they have anything 
else to eat.  However, if they have no choice but to eat these plants, they might develop a 
taste for them. 


A flower, sometimes known as a bloom or blossom, is the reproductive structure found in flowering plants . The biological function of a flower is to effect reproduction, usually by providing a mechanism for the union of sperm with eggs.  Some flowers produce spores without fertilization. Flowers contain sporangia and are the site where gametophytes develop. Flowers give rise to fruit and seeds. Many flowers have evolved to be attractive to animals, so as to cause them to be vectors for the transfer of pollen. In addition to facilitating the reproduction of flowering plants, flowers have long been admired and used by humans to beautify their environment, but also as objects of romance, ritual, religion, medicine and as a source of food.
