Todays Harvest 003 300x225 Recommended Vegetable Varieties

Anyone starting seeds at home? These all-natural containers work very well.

Pirat Lettuce seedlings - HEIRLOOM Heat tolerant variety with notably superior flavor and texture. It has a well-blanched heart surrounded by red-tinged outer leaves. Pirat bested every other variety for taste and texture in our 2003 lettuce trials and also rates as one of the best butterheads in combined resistance to Downy Mildew, White MoLettuce Drop, White Mold, Sclerotinia, Tip Burn, and Bacterial Head Rot.

Organic Aviv Red Beet - Aviv was bred for highly uniform roots and that is exactly what impressed us about this variety in our trials. This improved open-pollinated variety has been selected for quality and produces attractive globe shaped, slightly flattened red beets. Flavor is earthy with a balanced sweetness.

Organic Miami F1 Hybrid Carrot - Well-adapted as either an early or a main season carrot, Miami produces consistently uniform, cylindrical 6” long roots that tend to get stout as they mature. Feathery, attractive tops make for nice fresh market bunches. Nice crunch with carroty flavor. One of the sweetest varieties in our 2012 fall carrot trials.

Organic Silver Slicer Cucumber - A creamy white slicing cucumber with excellent flavor and lovely smooth skin! Thirty-five seedsters can’t be wrong: Silver Slicer cut through the competition to take not the silver but the gold in our 2013 cucumber taste test. Hands down winner due to its mild flavor, juicy texture and thin skin.

Organic Diamond Eggplant - We were so excited to discover this variety in our trials fields and it has really proven itself a standout for several seasons now. This OP eggplant is a very prolific and early producer. The slender, attractive dark purple fruit hang in clusters for easy picking. Diamond has a mild flavor and lacks bitterness as well as having a fine, creamy texture. This is the one to grow if you want eggplants in a short season.
