A vegetable was a type of plant matter which was considered appropriate for use as food. Some non-plants, like mushrooms and other fungi were sometimes considered to be vegetable matter. The definition generally excluded nuts, grains, herbs, spices, and sweet fruits (although some fruits, like tomatoes, were called vegetables).

While many vegetables were known to originate on Earth, there were many otherworldly variations of familiar Human foodstuffs. The term "vegetable" can also apply to a person who has suffered brain damage. Kor once said that he would turn James T. Kirk into a vegetable when the Klingon Empire and the United Federation of Planets were engaged in the First Klingon-Federation War. (TOS: "Errand of Mercy")
