I've been looking for something different, something new for me to try in the SFG this year.

I've found some stuff I thought would be cool to try.

A tomato called Monster Matoes suppose to getup to 12 inches round.

Zooming Zucchini, climbs, locks on and climbs up any surface

Everbearing Climbing Spinach, the more you pick the more the vine produces more leaves

Mammoth Cabbage, challenge the world record of 123 lbs

Mammoth onion challenge the world record of a 71/2 pound and measured 22 inch around

Rare climbing vine melon, taste like an Asian pear

Bush watermelons, vines just 3-31/2 long

Everglow strawberries big as peaches

King Kong strawberry, worlds biggest

Titan leeks as thick as a man's arm

What do you think? Anyone ever grow these?

Hi Josh!

Those all sound fantastic, and I've never heard of any of them....except that Zooming Zucchini sure sounds like rampicante. ;-) Please let us know how your plans go!!

Wow, those sound great! I hope you'll share pictures of your progress and your harvest. I'm curious, what's the name of the rare vining melon? My son LOVES asian pears, so I might give it a try. I don't usually grow melons because our farmer's market includes a guy who grows the best around, but I like to try exotic things. We're trying Lambkin melons this year. We haven't had any luck with the couple of melon varieties we tried in the past, mainly due to pests, so I plan to be vigilant.

Plants I've ordered for this year's SFG Empty Neat list

Post  ander217 on 2/23/2011, 7:25 am

That's a neat list, Josh.

I wonder if the everbearing climbing spinach might be Malabar spinach?

I wonder how many squares did you give your onion and cabbage, or did they get their own new box???

Hi Josh,

I've been enjoying the posts of the beautiful flower garden you've been putting together. It looks like a dream garden. You're obviously a very talented young man and I look forward to seeing more of your gardening posts! Good luck breaking those world records for the cabbage and onions!!!

Lol, great update! I was kind of curious about how they would do. Seems like they over exaggerated on some of the details!

I'm kind of disappointed about the zucchini Sad Climbing zucchinis sounded pretty cool.

Josh, I expect the strawberries were first year plants, they should do better next year. Do you have runners off this year's plants?
