Does anyone know of any root vegetables other than carrots that are just as convenient (no preparation, other than peeling, needed and can be eaten raw) and tasty?

Turnips and radishes. I've grown both in my backyard, and they're both easier to raise than carrots...they're not finicky about soil and they don't need as much water to get started. Radishes are especially easy. With both, the homegrowns are always a lot hotter and better-tasting than store-bought.

Thanks Mark.

I'll give turnips and radishes a try. Though I can guarantee they will be store bought and not home grown. No green thumbs here.

You might also look for daikon and jicama. Daikon is a large oriental radish, and another name for jicama is Mexican turnip (I don't think it's really a turnip, but outwardly they're similar; jicama is a little milder).

A couple others are sunchokes (Jerusalem artichokes) and rutabagas, but I don't have much experience with either of those.
