food shapes

i'm writing a story where a phalanx of scabbards are unsheathed to reveal various foods, and would love your help in determining what foods i haven't thought of which also have the right shape for scabbard sheathing.
these are the ones i have so far: sugar cane, plantain, carrot, asparagus, banana, cucumber, zucchini.

(i know some squashes could count, but i don't know the names of specific ones that would fit the shape)

what else is there?
