Growing your own vegetables has never looked, or tasted, so good.

Are heirloom vegetables more difficult to grow than conventional hybrids? The Beginner's Guide to Growing Heirloom Vegetables debunks this myth by highlighting the 100 heirloom vegetables that are the easiest to grow and the tastiest to eat.

Marie Iannotti makes it simple for beginning gardeners to jump on the heirloom trend by presenting an edited list based on years of gardening trial and error. Her plant criteria is threefold: The 100 plants must be amazing to eat, bring something unique to the table, and—most importantly—they have to be unfussy and easy to grow. Her list includes garden favorites like the meaty and mellow 'Lacinato' Kale, the underused and earthy 'Turkish Orange' Eggplant, and the unexpected sweetness of 'Apollo' Arugula.

From the Back Cover:

Heirloom vegetables often have a great story behind them, but it’s really all about the flavor. Why did Angela Nardello sew pepper seeds into the hem of her skirt before setting sail from Italy bound for America? It wasn’t so that she would have a tale to tell her grandchildren. It was because “Jimmy Nardello,” which she named after her son, is a one-of-a-kind pepper with a fresh, fruity sweetness that resembles ripe cherries. Or what about “Aunt Molly’s,” the ground cherry tomato that traveled all the way from Poland? With its sweet blend of pineapple, strawberry, and citrus notes, it’s perfect for making a delectable tomato jam. Heirloom expert Marie Iannotti brings us the fascinating stories, but more importantly she tells us which varieties to grow for the best flavor and how to cultivate each one successfully.
