It is used most efficiently when combined with Raw Food at a Stove to create two Cooked Meals. If the situation is dire a vegetable can eaten by itself from the fridge, however it won't replenish much hunger so they are best saved for making complete meals.
A Vegetable Garden, can grow 4 or 8 Vegetables at a time, with each batch taking 72 hours to grow.
Vegetables trade at the equivalent of 9 components from Franko (10.5 with Katia). Since one vegetable results in two meals and you can grow up to 8 every 3 days, they can become profitable in trading.
