Each year we trial annual fruits and vegetables. We evaluate new and old varieties side by side. During the season we make careful notation of flowering dates, fruit set dates, and first ripe fruits. In addition we evaluate plant habit, health, insect pressure, and taste. Our goal is to find out what varieties do best under our weather conditions here in Wisconsin.
Our data is used by both the home and market gardener to determine what to grow.
This years evaluations include a brief summary of weather conditions here at the station.Evaluations, garden update, Vegetables and tagged 2012, 2012 Vegetable Evaluations, Dane County, fall harvest of vegetables, fruit and vegetable preservation, garden produce, gardens, madison, organic, plants, University Display Gardens, vegetable evaluations, vegetable harvest, vegetable trials, vegetable varieties, vegetables, wisconsin, WMARS.
