Native to the U.K., Red Craigs Royal potatos are white inside with red skins streaked with yellow, indeed making them “a good choice for the show bench.” If you’d like to add some more color to your potato salad, there’s also the All-Blue Potato, said to be “the most direct descendant” of the potatoes that first grew 10,000 years ago in the Peruvian Andes.

Victoria rhubarb, said to have “established the gold standard by which to judge good rhubarb,” has both red and green stalks. It has a sweet taste like that of apples and gooseberries, with a twist of lemon or grapefruit (depending on your soil), that makes it great for desserts. It originates from the U.K. and dates back to around 1837.
