Answer: Vegetables which are ideally suited for growing in containers include tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, green onions, beans, lettuce, squash, radishes and parsley. Pole beans and cucumbers also do well in this type of garden, but they do require considerably more space because of their vining growth habit.

Here are some of the best adapted varieties:
Tomatoes: Patio, Pixie, Tiny Tim, Saladette, Toy Boy, Spring Giant, Tumbling Tom, Small Fry.
Peppers: Yolo Wonder, Keystone Resistant Giant, Canape, (Hot) Red Cherry, Jalapeno.
Eggplant: Florida Market, Black Beauty, Long Tom.
Squash: Dixie, Gold Neck, Early Prolific Straightneck, (Green) Zucco, Diplomat, Senator.
Leaf Lettuce: Buttercrunch, Salad Bowl, Romaine, Dark Green Boston, Ruby, Bibb.
Green Onions: Beltsville Bunching, Crysal Wax, Evergreen Bunching.
Green Beans: Topcrop, Greencrop, Contender, (Pole) Blue Lake, Kentucky Wonder.
Radishes: Cherry Belle, Scarlet Globe, (White) Icicle.
Parsley: Evergreen, Moss Curled.
Cucumbers: Burpless, Liberty, Early Pik, Crispy, Salty.
