It seems plants grown for food are typically picked for one part of the plant: buds (cauliflower), flowers (squash), leaves (lettuce), bulbs (onions), roots (beets), seeds (chocolate), or fruits. Is there a species that covers four or more categories? Maybe squash/pumpkin (flower, fruit, seeds) comes close?
