New varieties of vegetables are constantly being developed throughout the world and it is impossible to list and describe all of them, only those that are available and are adapted to the mid-Atlantic region are listed in this publication. While all efforts are made to have comprehensive lists, not all varieties that are adapted will be listed. Varieties are listed for each specific crop in Section F, either alphabetically or in order of relative time to maturity from early to late (see table footnotes). Those varieties that are new or that have had limited release will have the designation “trial” and should be evaluated in smaller plantings before being grown more extensively. The ultimate value of a variety for a particular purpose is determined by the grower: performance under his or her management adaptation to specific environmental conditions, and having desired horticultural characteristics.
