There are some fruits and vegetables that can produce more of themselves from having parts of them planted. There are other vegetables that will re-grow if done properly. For instance a green onion will completely re-grow itself if you just keep the bottom portion of it and place it in water. (See below). Here are some fruits and vegetables that can regenerate, or grow more of themselves, or just make cool plants.
Carrots â€“ If you cut off the top of the carrot where there the greenery grows you can plant it will grow in to a beautiful plant.

Green Onion â€“ Snip the end off of a green onion. Place some water in a cup about half the way up the green onion piece, place the green onion against the side of the cup with the fuzzy stuff down. The green onion will begin to grow and regenerate itself.
