Between Names of Vegetables, and Wikipedia-Nederlands, I've been doing a lot of translating today:

Nederlands / Scientific / English
knolselderij / Apium graveolens var. rapaceum / celeriac
pastinaken / Pastinaca sativa / parsnip
meiknolletjes - ?
schorseneren/ Scorzonera hispanica / black salsify, 'black oyster plant', 'serpent root', 'viper's grass'; a photo here
ramenas / Raphanus sativus / radish
koolraap / Brassica napus / rutabaga, swedish turnip, yellow turnip
koolrabi / Brassica oleracea var. gongylodes / kohlrabi (the German name)
rabarber / Rheum rhabarbarum / rhubarb (Moonbear got this one before me)
raapstelen / (?) Brassica rapa var. rapa / my guess is a turnip? (raap-)
postelein / Portulaca oleracea syn. Portulaca sativa / purslane, 'pusley', 'little hogweed'
zuring / Rumex acetosa / common sorrel

Hope this helps! Links are all to wikipedia articles (English versions).
