What are your favorite summer crop varieties? Let's make a fedi faves list. ✨ 🍅 🥕 🌱
- West Virginia Mountaineer Delight Tomatoes: Highly productive, disease-resistant, and overall easy and pleasant to have in the garden. In my experience they are really tolerant of inconsistent/dramatic weather conditions.
- Contender Green Beans: Prolific bush bean variety with great flavor and continuous production through the season. Hold up well to pest stress.
- Cosmic Purple Carrots: Bright sweet flavor, stunningly beautiful purple exterior with orange interior. Easy to start and grows without much fuss. Does really well with drip irrigation.
- Super Shepherd Sweet Pepper: Rich sweet flavor, high yield, thick-walled high quality fruits. Easy to start and grow. One of the last plants to leave the garden going into fall! Excellent roasted and frozen to enjoy throughout winter months.
@tickfoot we also like cosmic purple carrots and marketmore cukes! Some other faves of ours:
Mississippi Purple Pod pole beans - very heat tolerant, fun color, minimal string and very productive
Sungold cherry tomatoes - incredible flavor. Great orange color. Would be great in a salad but we usually end up snacking on them right away.
Mr. Stripey tomatoes - big, juicy, colorful and delicious slicer. Great for sandwiches.
Theres also a tomato variety around here I wish I knew more about called Mountain Magic. They're on the smaller side and not the most exciting, but they're very blight resistant, which counts for a lot.
I've also two tiny pepper plants. One is growing from a seed and it's still very small. The other plant I found in a construction center and sits now between the tomatoes.
I got also habanero chillies from our Brazilian neighbors. But it was not possible to grow plants from the seeds. 🥺
