Last week we gave you our gardener's picks for the top summer garden edible producers in our entry entitled, "Top 8 MOST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK Picks for Your Garden."

Today we bring you Arlene's picks for the tastiest produce we grew during our last summer season! Here they are in no particular order...

UC Davis Good Life Garden Picks the "TOP 7 TASTIEST EDIBLES" for Your Garden:
  • Bush Bean 'Gold Rush'
  • Eggplant 'Imperial Black Beauty'
  • Melon 'Arava'
  • Melon 'Sharlyn'
  • Chile Pepper 'Serrano'
  • Tomato 'Green Zebra'
  • Tomato 'Chadwick Cherry'
You may remember that a couple of these, the chadwick cherry tomato and the serrano chile pepper also made our "Most Bang for Your Buck" picks...something to think about as it is finally planting time here in our neck of the woods!

We wish we could tell you where to secure these varieties locally! We receive most of these varieties from Seeds of Change and either plant them from seed directly into our garden or have the seeds grown into starts at a nearby nursery. If you have your own "TOP TASTIEST EDIBLE" picks, or have other suggestions on where to secure these varieties, please let us know by commenting on this post!
