Five summer-planted favorites for fall harvest.

In the height of summer when harvesting is in full swing, it's important to remember that seeding a fresh round of quick-maturing varieties will deliver a welcome bounty in the fall. High Mowing's Wholesale Sales Manager, Jenn Detweiler, shares five of her favorites.

Says Jenn, "Our wholesale team has curated a special selection of varieties suited for fall harvest for our partnered retail stores, and these are five personal favorites that I grow in my own veggie garden. They taste delicious and are reliable producers. Enjoy!"

Included in this Collection are:

  • Miami Carrot - 250 seeds. "Carrots are a staple in my house, especially in winter recipes, so I have to have some storage carrots in the crisper drawer. Miami has it all - great flavor and storage, and a disease package to get through the challenges of summer."
  • Belstar Broccoli - 25 seeds. "In my opinion, fall broccoli is the best broccoli - it matures at a time when the pests that plague brassicas in spring are succumbing to cooler temperatures. Belstar is my go-to for fall because it's a hybrid that germinates and grows well in the heat of summer, and has excellent cold tolerance during harvest time."
  • Red Russian Kale - 1/32 oz. "I prefer to harvest Red Russian as a baby leaf kale, which means I can quickly direct sow a row any time up until about early September here in Vermont. This fits in perfectly with a busy summer schedule and satisfies my cravings for fresh greens alongside heartier fall dishes."
  • Detroit Dark Red Beet - 1/16 oz. "A pantry full of home-pickled beets is a beautiful thing, and growing a great storage beet like Detroit Dark Red allows me to harvest and store these roots until the kitchen is cool enough to fire up the canner."
  • Watermelon Radish - 1/16 oz. "If you're going to grow Watermelon Radish (and you should!), the fall garden is the place for it. I store my harvest in the vegetable drawer all winter, and use a mandoline to shave it into paper thin crisps topped with vinaigrette and a little salt."
