    The top one is definitely Kohlrabi and there are lots of fun recipes for that one. Can you cut open the bottom one as it looks like a round zucchini but the colour is a bit off, so I'd like to see the inside as well. – Fabby Jul 1 '18 at 22:11
  • wonder if it is a Thai eggplant? – Steve Chambers Jul 1 '18 at 23:18
  • @steve chambers Looks very similar. The geographic region is mexico. – user5389726598465 Jul 1 '18 at 23:22
  • I'd think twice about eating the bottom one, from the pictures it looks like it may have gone off. – GdD Jul 2 '18 at 7:44

The top is a kohlrabi. Two approaches I like a lot:

  • treat it like a potato. Peel it, cut into chunks, and boil it (and optionally sliced the boiled pieces and fry them in a little butter)
  • treat it like cabbage or jicama. Peel it, julienne it raw and toss with grated carrot and whatever you dress coleslaw with (mayo and lemon juice for me)

The bottom could be a very small squash or a round zucchini. You can roast, sautee, or braise (think ratatouille). If it's a zucchini you can also eat it raw.
