Well, this year I tried Romanesco Broccoli, got nothing, Strawberry Spinach, kind of so-so leaves and very bland berries, Sweet Potatoes, not bad for this area, and Huckleberries, awful raw, but excellent as jam or pie filling. The only thing I will do again is the Huckleberries and maybe the Sweet Potatoes (I got so much winter squash that I really don't need them). Next year's garden will be much smaller as I'm running out of things to try!
I ended up with plenty of the standard garden vegetables, so I'm not disappointed at all this year. If anyone has a suggestion to try, I'm all ears!

I like green Pak choi much more than the white ones and I love the Chinese Cabbage! I couldn't harvest any last year as the latter bolted! Very disappointing!

I grew Bak Choy last year, it bolted almost immediately. I may try it again as it produced tons of seeds that sprout inside with no problem.

I wish I hadn't stumbled on this thread. Now I'm browsing through all these sites with Asian vegetables! So much to try, so little space!

One other thing, go to a farmers market. Buy some vegetables, if they taste great save the seeds and give them a go. If it is not a seed type, chat up the farmer most will tell you what kind of carrot, broccoli, so on it is.
If you catch it in the spring some even bring plants.
