Carrots are probably the most famous of all the vegetables that have eyes. Carrot eyes are usually located at the tops of the carrots, which is also called the crown of the carrot. These are the eyes that will eventually sprout leaves.
Potatoes typically have several eyes located on the skin of the potato. The eyes are usually located in clusters, and these eyes are the part of the potato that will sprout new plants when given the right environment.
Radishes have eyes too, which are usually seen on the crunchy, edible portions of the radish. The eyes can be black, brown or pink in color.
