New EU regulations?

While I was weeding my allotment yesterday, I remembered something a student told me a while ago. He is not just an avid German learner, he also has an allotment. So one day he decided to combine his two hobbies. He got some nice stones and started labelling all vegetables in English and German.
Within a short time he was asked by fellow allotmenteers, what type of vegetable that weird (German) name was. Each time he replied that it was a new variety. After a while he got bored with the same reply, so when he was asked again, he said "Haven't you heard about the new EU regulations? All vegetables on allotments have to be labelled in English and another language!"

I quite like the idea ;-)
