Summer_Vegetable_Planting_Guide

Getting started with horticultural production (fruit and vegetable production) allows you to diversify your production and to earn more money from your farm/land. 

Below are 23 vegetables you can grow during the warm season and in some instances year-round. 


Quick disclaimer: please note that these vegetables & fruit are not suitable for all parts of the country. Use the list as a planning guide but check with your Agritex officer for the best vegetables to grow in your area. Some vegetables such as leafy greens (rape, lettuce, and cabbage) are more prone to pest pressure during the warm, wet season. Pick the best vegetables based on your soil type and drainage, climate, water availability, market and budget.
