Are you sometimes overwhelmed by the number of vegetable varieties available? Wouldn't it be great if you could know, before you plant, which varieties will perform best in your area?
Researchers at Cornell University have created an interactive database that does just that. The Vegetable Varieties for Gardeners citizen science project allows home gardeners to enter the name of the vegetable variety they have grown, indicate their geographic location, rate its performance, and write a detailed review. Presently there are more than 2000 vegetable varieties in the database that you can browse through.
