Check here for others. glycemicindex.

Celery is pretty low, carrots pretty high. As a rule of thumb, think about the portion of the plant you will be eating.

The stalk is usually fibrous and low in carbs
The leaves are the same, but there are exceptions, such as onions, in which the bulbs are actually modified leaves.
The fruit is usually higher, such as in tomatoes or berries
The roots are frequently the highest, especially in tubers like potatoes.
