Giant Vegetables,[1] or Huge Vegetables,[2] are a much larger variant of regular Turnip introduced in BS Super Mario USA. Due to their size, they take longer to pluck and can hit more enemies.


BS Super Mario USA[edit]

In BS Super Mario USA, Giant Vegetables are thrown in threes by an angry Peach; these can also hit the player. The villains can also do this, though their veggies are black with angry faces on them.

Super Mario Advance series[edit]

Super Mario Advance[edit]

In Super Mario Advance, Giant Vegetables sometimes replace what were originally regular Turnips in the original Super Mario Bros. 2.

Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3[edit]

Giant Vegetables return in Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3, in World-e levels such as Vegetable Volley. They can also be found in the main game levels upon the player scanning the Blue Green Switch; they typically appear in Giant Land.

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story / Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey[edit]

In Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and its remake, during the Wiggler boss battle, two Leaf Guys can appear on the upper screen, carrying a Giant Vegetable to toss against Bowser. If he vacuums them before they can, the Giant Vegetable will land on the Wiggler, completely turning him calm.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker[edit]

Giant Vegetables reappear in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and its ports as part of the battles against Wingo, who summons them to hit Captain Toad, but they can be plucked and thrown back at Wingo to defeat him.
