It is so important to use seeds that grow well in your area. Here are some varieties of seeds that do really well where we live in zone 7 on our North Carolina homestead.
Green beans – Mountain half runner
Purple hull peas
Yellow granex onions
Broccoli – calabrese sprouting
Corn – silver queen for sweet corn
Lettuce – butter crunch
Potatoes – a mix here of Kinnebec and Yukon Gold
Okra – Clemson Spineless
Tomatoes – The opinions at our house vary on this. Our favorite heirloom tomato is Cherokee Purple but it is subject to blight, Amish tomato paste for making sauces of all sorts,
Peppers – Anaheim for green chilis, cayenne for red pepper flakes and spray for bugs, jalapeno for salsa and California Wonder Bell Peppers
trommbonchinao squash – because we are tired of fighting the vine borer. It is relentless.
Lima Beans - Henderson Bush
