Planning my Heirloom Order... Empty I've grown a few of them

Post  ander217 on 1/31/2011, 8:42 am

I'm in zone 6 and I've grown a few things on your list.

I grew Dragon's Tongue beans last year. They are beautiful and very good-flavored. I planted them in fall to use for fresh shelly beans, but I wish I had eaten some for green beans because I planted them late and frost got them before they all had a chance to make seed.

I've grown Bloomsdale spinach for decades. I try other varieties but I always come back to it.

Arkansas Traveler is a good pink tomato - it grows well in our hot and humid summers. The flavor may not be as intense as some heirlooms but it's worth growing because it is a dependable producer.

The only negative I have to say about your list is the oregano vulgare. I grew it but was disappointed in the flavor. Then I read that Greek oregano has better flavor so I grew it, and I heartily agree that it is better. I kept the oregano vulgare (also called Italian oregano here) because the large purple flowers attract bees and butterflies, but I go to the white-flowered Greek oregano for cooking.
