POPULAR SHORT SEASON VEGETABLE VARIETIES FOR ALASKA
Many varieties of vegetables, when grown in arctic and subarctic areas, out-perform their counterparts in warm climates. These varieties include Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Edible Podded Peas, Lettuce, Radishes, Sweet Peas, Swiss Chard, and Turnips. Because of the long sunny days and rapid plant growth, vegetables grown in Alaska have a higher sugar content so they are are sweeeter and more succelent than when grown in areas with shorter days. These varieties perform the best in warmer climates during late winter and very early spring.
We also offer varieties of seed for traditionally warm-climate crops that have been tested in Alaska and proven to grow satisfactorily. These varieties will perform in the warmer parts of Alaska, in select warm locations or in greenhouses and include Green Beans, Sweet Corn, Cucumbers, Peppers, Pumpkin, Squash and Tomatoes. If a variety performs best indoors or intended for greenhouse production, it will be stated on the front of the seed packet.
Our seed list also includes the common standards to include Beets, Brussels Sprouts, Carrots, Celery, Collards, Kale, Kohlrabi, Mustard, Onions, Parsnips, Rutabaga, and Spinach.
