The Plants

Tomato 

Fresh Market

Plant to Harvest: 45-70 days
Space Needed: 24-36 inches

Helpful Tip:

Fresh market tomatoes will ripen to a decent size without becoming too large or heavy for the plant. This variety is sweet, juicy, and full of flavor to add into your kitchen. You can either start your tomato plant by tying it loosely to a stake to provide support, or you can wait to trellis it once it reaches 6-8 inches in height.

Tomato 

Cherry

Plant to Harvest: 45-65 days
Space Needed: 24-36 inches

Helpful Tip:

When growing cherry tomatoes, pick off the suckers! Look for where the branches meet the stalk (forming that angular V shape). Take off the small suckers at these meeting points and at the bottom of your plant to use more of its energy to make fruit. Trellis your cherry tomatoes once they reach 6-8 inches of height to support the weight of the fruit on the branches.

Tomato

Saladette

Plant to Harvest: 50-65 days
Space Needed: 24-36 inches

Helpful tip:

This kale can be harvested as it grows. Remember to not harvest more than ⅓ of the plant at a time to avoid shock. Planting it deeper into the soil will give it more support and keep it healthy as it starts off.

Cucumber

Slicer

Plant to Harvest: 40-55 days
Space Needed: 16-24 inches

Helpful Tip:

This cucumber is a bush variety. You can trellis this if you want to, but it’s not necessary. Patio snacker cucumbers are designed to be a more compact cucumber plant. This will allow you more space in your garden. Harvest your cucumbers when they are 6-8 inches in length. This will optimize the flavor and keep your plant producing more fruit.

Cucumber

Pickling

Plant to Harvest: 40-55 days
Space Needed: 16-24 inches

Helpful tip:

Scallop squash needs to be planted in full sun with well draining soil. Scallop squash is also called “Patty Pan Squash!” Consistently water your squash plant, and add mulch to keep moisture in the soil. Harvest scallop squash when they are 2-4” in diameter.

Arugula

Plant to Harvest: 60-80 days
Space Needed: 48 inches

Helpful tip:

Each cantaloupe plant can produce from four to eight cantaloupes. The best way to grow cantaloupes is to make sure the leaves have good air circulation. When leaves are on the soil and do not have good air clow, they can be more prone to disease and pests. Harvest cantaloupe when the outside ring is a raised, textured webbing. Discoloration is normal with cantaloupe because where it lays as it is growing will be a different color. A green rind will indicate that the fruit is unripe, so wait until the rind becomes more golden for harvest.

Bean

Plant to harvest: 60-80 days
Space Needed: 48 inches

Helpful tip:

Watermelon can be a very large plant to grow, so make sure you have enough space. The soil will need to be warm, filled with nutrients, and watered often. Watermelon is recommended to have fertilizer or compost when planted. Harvest your watermelon when the underside of the watermelon turns from a greenish white to a yellow. You can test if a watermelon is ripe by knocking on the watermelon to hear a hollow sound.

Hot Pepper

Capitan

Plant to Harvest: 50-70 days
Space Needed: 16-24 inches

Helpful tip:

Jalapenos (and peppers in general) love full sun. They grow best in the warm weather, and love soil with good drainage. Something great about jalapenos is they generally resist most garden insect pests! To harvest your jalapenos, we recommend not pulling them directly from the plant, instead, use shears to harvest them. Pepper plants are delicate, so avoid damaging them as much as possible. 

Sweet Pepper

California Wonder

Plant to harvest: 40-60 days
Space Needed: 16-24 inches

Helpful tip:

This pepper will have striped fruit and striped leaves, do not throw this plant away if it has white variegation on the leaves or has a striped fruit! It is designed to be a beautiful addition to your garden with its unique coloring. This is a sweet, small snacking pepper. It will grow to be the size of the palm of your hand, and will have a burst of sugary flavor. We recommend you stake your pepper plant (or even trellis it if you want) and keep it in full sun as much as possible. Check regularly for insect pests since it is a sweet fruit. Harvest peppers with shears or a knife to protect the plant from damage.

Pumpkin

Kandy Korn

Plant to harvest: 40-60 days
Space Needed: 16-24 inches

Helpful tip:

Staking your bell pepper plants is a good option to give it the support it needs. Bell peppers do best in full sun and warm weather. These plants will need a deep watering– one to two inches per week. Aphids and flea beetles love bell peppers, so be sure to check for pests often. Like jalapenos, use a sharp knife or shears to harvest the pepper to avoid damaging the plant.

Pumpkin

20 Karat

Plant to harvest: 40-50 days
