What varieties will perform best in your garden?

Just in time for arrival of this year’s crop of seed catalogs, the 2013 edition of Selected List of Vegetable Varieties for Gardeners in New York State is now available online.

The varieties listed in this report should be well adapted for most home gardens in New York State, offer relatively high quality, be dependable, possess disease and insect resistance when
possible, and have a relatively long harvest period. Field of Horticulture MS candidate Sarah Hulick coordinated this year’s update.

There may be varieties not listed in the report that will perform satisfactorily in your garden, or even better under certain conditions. If you’d like to dive into a larger pool of varieties as you plan you garden, visit our Vegetable Varieties for Gardeners website for detailed descriptions and seed sources of more than 6,100 varieties.
