Purple Pac choi — one of several varieties that overwinter with little protection

November 24, 2017

Looking for veggies that will overwinter in the garden with little protection? Roberta Bailey listed several in her MOF&G article, "Winter Greens Fill the Garden Palette" – "varieties that are very resilient and cold hardy and some that eat snow for breakfast." She includes 'Kolibri' kohlrabi, which frequently overwinters with nothing more than snow cover; 'North Pole', 'Hyper Red Rumpled', 'Dark Red Lolla Rossa' and 'Brun d'Hiver' lettuce, which survive with nothing more than row cover; and many more. Keep Roberta's list handy when you order seeds for your next garden.
