* ''Manga/DragonBall'' has holy beans, which can instantly satisfy the appetite of even the {{big|eater}}gest eaters and will recover the stamina of those who eat them, as well as immediately heal all injuries bar amputation. ''Anime/YoSonGokuAndHisFriendsReturn'' introduces Chichi's grateful radish, a seed that can spout into hand sized vegetables overnight but will root itself in the ground so hard regular humans can't even remove the smallest sprouts, and they can grow to be root extending to the base of a mountain massive.

* ''Series/StargateSG1'': {{Invoked|Trope}} offscreen in the ShowWithinAShow ''Wormhole X-Treme'', when Martin Lloyd tells a prop guy to "get some kiwis and spray-paint them green" for a scene, instead of using [[HowDoYouLikeThemApples apples]].

* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' has mostly mundane plants such as bilberries, but a few unusual ones turn up, most notably underground crops such as the subterranean mushrooms known as plump helmets, the cloth-providing pig tails, or dimple cups, which can be ground into dye.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheGreatestAdventureStoriesFromTheBible'', the ForbiddenFruit from the Garden of Eden is depicted as looking like a beet with a yellow top (only it grows from a tree, not in the ground.) Similarly, the Tree of Life's fruit (the antidote to the Tree of Knowledge) looks rather like an eggplant. Justified, in that it's not known what these fruits were or might have been based on. [[note]] The Tree of Knowledge is usually depicted as an apple tree because the Latin word for "apple" is very close to the word for "evil." However, most scholars agree that an apple even being ''known'' in ancient Mesopotamia would have been very farfetched indeed; apples originated further to the East, somewhere around what's now Kazakhstan.[[/note]]
