More people join the ranks of vegetable gardeners each year, whether it is delving in to growing a traditional vegetable garden with all the trimmings or cultivating a few cucumbers and tomatoes in containers on a deck or porch. Any more, the vegetable craze is about more than healthy eating. It’s also about flavor, sustainability, variety, organically grown, and more. New varieties of edibles introduced at 2016 California Spring Trials offer something for every type of gardener, from the beginning do-it-yourselfer to the hardcore, heirloom-only type. Check out 17 of the new varieties we saw at Spring Trials this year that will be available for retail in 2017.
