Best Vegetable Varieties for North Dakota

Recommendations for gardeners

Cover of reportNorth Dakota State University and a team of over 500 gardeners have evaluated hundreds of varieties in backyard gardens over the past five years. The team rated the varieties for germination, plant health, earliness, yield and taste. The results of the 2013 trials and our recommendations for 2014 are available for downloading below.

Everyone is welcome to join our team! You will be introduced to new varieties, sharpen your skills in science, and grow healthy vegetables. It is a fun project for the entire family. Our seed catalog for 2014 will be posted in February. For more information, contact Extension Horticulturist Tom Kalb.
