Vegetables on Stamps – Liechtenstein 2018

Liechtenstein issued four stamps on Vegetables on 05 Mar 2018.

The “Aubergine” (face value: CHF 0.85) is used particularly in the Mediterranean, oriental and Turkish cuisine where it attained fame through several special dishes such as moussaka.

Cut into slices or grated into thin strips, the bulbs of the “Radish” (face value: CHF 1.00) are eaten raw. They can be added to salads or used in sandwiches.

The “Courgette”, otherwise known as “zucchini” (face value: CHF 1.50), is a subspecies of the vegetable marrow. Courgettes are eaten raw, boiled, grilled or fried. Their large yellow blossom is also fit for human consumption and considered a delicacy.

The classical hot pepper, known as “peperoni” in these parts (face value: CHF 2.00), can also be prepared in many different ways. It originally comes from South America and is available in many different colours
