Kay, you forgot to post the link, I think!

I grew Yukon Golds and red pontiacs last year and the Yukon golds tasted way better althouth they were both good. And sweet 100s are an excellent cherry tomato producer as well as pear tomato! I also loved lemon boy for a slicing yellow tomato. And for beets Detroit dark red. Those are a few of my favorites!

A couple of standouts in my garden:
Lettuce bib/head - Buttercrunch
Peppers – Golden Marconi
Potatoes - I buy a multicolor fingerling pack from the grocery...
Cucumbers - Sumter, Muncher, Bosting Pickling, Marketmore...
Carrots - Try one of the Rainbow mixes.
Green Beans - Try a yard long bean if you have the room.
Watermelon - Desert King!
Tomatoes – Nyagous, Eva Purple Ball, Brown Berry, Yellow Pear, Pineapple.

Corn - Silver Queen

Cucumber - Muncher - I tried 4 varieties of cucumbers last year and by far the best producer was muncher. They produced female flowers right from the start and therefore earlier production than the other three varieties. My taste buds are shot so I can't tell you if the taste was any better than the others.

For the purple carrots Cosmic Purple has always been a good producer for me. Dark purple skin with bright orange insides, great flavor!
