Guess the Veggie

Greetings from Los Angeles! Yesterday we went to the Santa Monica Farmers' Market to shop for dinner and walked the aisles fighting off a nasty case of Santa Monica envy. Along the way, we came across a handsome young farmer selling this stuff.

Any guesses? Click through for more photos.

These treasures are sold on the stalk like this because of how labor intensive it is to get them down to their edible bits (see below.) We're having a ******** **** shelling party tomorrow.

See that wad of cash below? They weren't cheap!

So... still stumped? Leave your answer below.
