Selenium is one of the essential trace elements in human body. Vegetables have the capacity to absorb and transform selenium, and therefore become the main source of selenium supplementation in human diet. Enriching the selenium content in vegetables is of great significance to ensure human health. The uptake, transformation and accumulation of exogenous selenium by vegetables, as well as the influence of exogenous selenium on vegetable yield and quality, are summarized to better understand the research progress in selenium enrichment of vegetables. Combined with the existing problems, the research directions to enhance selenium enrichment of vegetables are outlined.
