Onion, sweet corn battle for N.Y. veggie

UPI News Service, 04/15/2011 

Competing bills in the New York state legislature would set the state's official vegetable as onions or sweet corn.

State Sen. David Carlucci, D-Rockland/Orange, started the controversy last week by nominating the onion, a major crop in his district, to become the state vegetable and state Sen. Michael Nozzolio, R-Seneca County, responded with a bill to give the title to sweet corn, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.

Julie Suarez of the non-profit New York Farm Bureau said a Facebook poll on the issue has sweet corn ahead by more than 1,000 votes with one day of voting remaining.

"Clearly, people feel passionately about their vegetables," she said.

"It doesn't matter whether you prefer onion or sweet corn," Suarez said. "What does matter is that when people walk into the grocery store, hopefully they'll start looking for New York state-grown vegetables."
