"It is my turn," said Cabbage. Blood Brothers of Gor, page 249,350


Beans

At the oasis will be grown a hybrid; brownish Sa-Tarna, adapted to the heat of the desert; most Sa-Tarna is yellow; and beans,
berries, onions, tuber suls, various sorts of melons, a foliated leaf vegetable, called Katch, and various root vegetables, such as
turnips, carrots, radishes, of the sphere and cylinder varieties, and korts, a large, brownish-skinned, thick-skinned, sphere-shaped
vegetable, usually some six inches in width, the interior of which is yellowish, fibrous and heavily seeded. Tribesmen of Gor, page 37

Garlic

"I have peas and turnips, garlic and onions in my hut," said the man, his bundle like a giant's hump on his back. Outlaw of Gor,

Kes Roots

First she boiled and simmered a kettle of Sullage, a common Gorean soup consisting of three standard ingredients and, as it is said,
whatever else may be found, saving only the rocks of the field. The principal ingredients of Sullage are the golden Sul, the starchy,
golden-brown, vine-borne fruit of the golden-leaved Sul plant; the curled, red, ovate leaves of the Tur-pah, a tree parasite,
cultivated in host orchids of Tur trees; and the salty, blue secondary roots of the
Kes Shrub, a small, deeply rooted plant which
grows best in sandy soil. Priest-Kings of Gor, page 45

berries, onions, tuber suls, various sorts of melons, a foliated leaf vegetable, called Katch, and various root vegetables, such as

Mushrooms

"Have a stuffed mushroom."  Mercenaries of Gor, page 81

Peas

"I have peas and turnips, garlic and onions in my hut," said the man, his bundle like a giant's hump on his back. Outlaw of Gor, page
29


Peppers

Some of the peppers and spices, relished even by children in the Tahari districts, were sufficient to convince an average good fellow
of Thentis or Ar that the roof of his mouth and his tongue were being torn out of his head. Tribesmen of Gor, page 47


Potatoes

'Dorna the Proud,' said the slave, who tumbled onions, turnips, radishes, potatoes and bread into the feed trough. Outlaw of Gor,
page 155


Radishes

At the oasis will be grown a hybrid; brownish Sa-Tarna, adapted to the heat of the desert; most Sa-Tarna is yellow; and beans,
berries, onions, tuber suls, various sorts of melons, a foliated leaf vegetable, called katch, and various root vegetables, such as
turnips, carrots,
radishes, of the sphere and cylinder varieties, and korts, a large, brownish-skinned, thick-skinned, sphere-shaped
vegetable, usually some six inches in width, the interior of which is yellowish, fibrous and heavily seeded.  Tribesmen of Gor, page 37


Sul

Sul paga is, when distilled, though the Sul itself is yellow, as clear as water. The Sul is a tuberous root of the Sul plant; it is a
Gorean staple.
Slave Girl of Gor, page 134


Turnips

"I have peas and turnips, garlic and onions in my hut," said the man, his bundle like a giant's hump on his back. Outlaw of Gor, page

Tur-Pah Leaves

First she boiled and simmered a kettle of Sullage, a common Gorean soup consisting of three standard ingredients and, as it is said,
whatever else may be found, saving only the rocks of the field. The principal ingredients of Sullage are the golden Sul, the starchy,
golden-brown, vine-borne fruit of the golden-leaved Sul plant; the curled, red, ovate leaves of the
Tur-pah, a tree parasite,
cultivated in host orchids of Tur trees; and the salty, blue secondary roots of the Kes Shrub, a small, deeply rooted plant which
grows best in sandy soil. Priest-Kings of Gor, page 45

Spices, herbs and peppers

There is a little market in simple Laura for the more exquisite goods of Gor. Seldom will one find there Torian rolls of gold wire,
interlocking cubes of silver from Tharna, rubies carved into tiny, burning panthers from Schendi,
nutmegs and cloves, spikenard and
peppers from the lands east of Bazi, the floral brocades, the perfumes of Tyros, the dark wines, the gorgeous diaphanous silks of
glorious Ar. Life, even by Gorean standards, is primitive in the region of the Laurius, and northward, to the great forests, and along
the coast, upward to Torvaldsland. Captive of Gor, page 86

Salt

The red salt of Kasra, so called from its port of embarcation, was famed on Gor. It was brought from secret pits and mines, actually,
deep in the interior, bound in heavy cylinders on the backs of pack kaiila. Each cylinder, roped to others, weighed in the
neighborhood of ten stone, or some forty pounds, a Gorean "Weight." A strong kaiila could carry sixteen such cylinders, but the
normal load was ten. Even numbers are carried, of course, that the load is balanced. A poorly loaded kaiila can carry far less weight
than one on whom the burden is intelligently distributed. Tribesmen of Gor, page 20

Nuts, salt, tea, dates, beans, berries, larma, tospits,etc…

To the oases caravans bring various goods, for example, rep-cloth, embroidered cloths, silks, rugs, silver, gold, jewelleries, mirrors,
kailiauk tusk, perfumes, hides, skins, feathers, precious woods, tools, needles, worked leather goods,
salt, nuts and spices, jungle
birds, prized as pets, weapons, rough woods, sheets of tin and copper, the
tea of Bazi, wool from the bounding Hurt, decorated,
beaded whips, female slaves, and many other forms of merchandise. The principal export of the oases is dates and pressed-date
bricks. Some of the date palms grow to more than a hundred feet high. It takes ten years before they begin to bear fruit. They will
then yield fruit for more than a century. A given tree, annually, yields between one and five Gorean weights of fruit. A weight is
some ten stone, or some forty Earth pounds. A great amount of farming, or perhaps one should speak of gardening, is done at the
oasis, but little of this is exported. At the oasis will be grown a hybrid, brownish Sa-Tarna, adapted to the heat of the desert; most
Sa-Tarna is yellow; and beans, berries, onions tuber suls, various sorts of melons, a foliated leaf vegetable, called Katch, and
various root vegetables, such as turnips, carrots, radishes, of the sphere and cylinder varieties, and korts, a large, brownish-
skinned, thick-skinned, sphere-shaped vegetable, usually some six inches in width, the interior of which is yellowish, fibrous and
heavily seeded. At the oasis, because of the warm climate, the farmers can grow two or more crops a year. Larma and tospits are
also grown at the oases, in small orchards. Some rep is grown, for cloth, but most cloth comes to the oases from caravans. Kaiila
and verr are found at the oases, but not in great numbers. The herds of these animals are found in the desert. Tribesmen of Gor

I tasted the porridge. It had not yet been seasoned. Trying it, with one spoonful or another, from one vial or pot, or another, I
seasoned it to my taste. I would later, now and then, here and there, in one place or another, mix in condiments. By such devices
one obtains variety, or its deceptive surrogate, even in a substance seemingly so initially unpromising as inn porridge. Renegades of
Gor, page 73


Bond Maid Gruel

Another of the bond-maids was then freed to mix the bond-maid gruel, mixing fresh water with Sa-Tarna meal, and then stirring in
the raw fish. Marauders of Gor, page 63


Cold Porridge

I, mixing the water with the precooked meal, formed a sort of cold porridge or gruel. I then, with my fingers, and putting the bowl
even to my lips, fell eagerly upon that thick, bland, moist substance. Kajira of Gor, page 257


Sullage

First she boiled and simmered a kettle of Sullage, a common Gorean soup consisting of three standard ingredients and, as it is said,
whatever else may be found, saving only the rocks of the field. The principal ingredients of Sullage are the golden Sul, the starchy,
golden-brown, vine-borne fruit of the golden-leaved Sul plant; the curled, red, ovate leaves of the Tur-pa, a tree parasite, cultivated
in host orchids of Tur trees; and the salty, blue secondary roots of the Kes Shrub, a small, deeply rooted plant which grows best in
sandy soil. Priest-Kings of Gor, page 45

Pemmican

This is the Kaiila word for pemmican. A soft cake of this substance was pressed into my hands. I crumbled it. In the winter, of
course, such cakes can be frozen solid. One then breaks them into smaller pieces, warms them in one's hands and mouth, and eats
them bit by bit. Blood Brothers of Gor, page 46
