If you had to suggest a reliable variety of a veggie, what would you suggest. And, why? And, for what Zones or States?

Sun Gold Tomatoes - Right off the bat, I think of Sun Gold Tomatoes. A hybrid that is popular in nurseries. Prolific and heat hardy up to 110*F with sun protection. California, short/medium day, Zone 9A.

French Breakfast Radishes - Quick to germinate, mild for a radish. Cool weather of spring or fall in California, Zone 9A

Dwarf Curly Kale. Easy to grow and tolerant of heat and cold. Once they start producing, they can keep going for a year or more. They survive our extreme heat, but I don't know how they do in extreme cold. Mine never bolt and never get tough, bitter or stringy.

Swiss Chard Bright Lights, really pretty, dependable.  Any variety is easy, this one is just super pretty!  

Sugar Snap Peas, “Sugar Snap”.  Delish, love them.

Basil, Sweet Basil.  Expensive to buy, and easy to grow in containers.  Make pesto or dry/freeze.

Blue Lake Bush green beans.  Sprout quick, get size quick, and short cycle.  Easily the easiest to grow and more importantly know its what you planted and not a volunteer or something else blown into your bed.  Here in SoCal they're pretty much plantable 365 days a year.
