Best Vegetable Varieties for Gardeners
by Charlie Nardozzi
Are you sometimes overwhelmed with the number of vegetable variety choices available? Wouldnt it be great if you could know before you plant, which varieties will perform best in your area?
Researchers at Cornell University have created an interactive database that does just that. The Vegetable Varieties for Gardeners citizen science project allows home gardeners to enter in the vegetable variety they have grown, indicate their geographic location, rate its performance and write a detailed review. Presently there are more than 2000 vegetable varieties entered in the database to browse.
