44 Super-Nutritious Varieties for Your Garden

What are some of the most nutritious fruits and vegetables to plant in your home garden?


| March / April 2018


Home gardeners enjoy the benefit of planting their own choice of crops. Take more advantage of that by choosing fruit and vegetable varieties that are packed with nutrients and health benefits.

Learn more about comparing fruit and vegetable varieties in “Most Nutritious Crop Varieties.”

Alliums

• ‘Spanish Roja’ garlic, like all garlic varieties, is a source of allicin, which can reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. This hardneck garlic is intense and spicy.

• ‘Southport Red Globe’ onion is an heirloom and excellent keeper that provides anthocyanins and quercetin.



• ‘Bonilla’ shallot provides, as all shallots do, more antioxidants than onions. Grow from seed and harvest the same year.

Apples

• ‘Akane’ is rich in phytonutrients. This Japanese variety is disease-resistant and a satisfying blend of sweet and tart.

Good article, but I can't find a supplier for most varieties you listed. Are you able to list places to purchase seds, plants or trees listed?
