Perennial Vegetables

Perennial Vegetables

Most vegetables eaten in America are annuals (plants that need to be grown from seed every year), due to the European ancestry of early Americans. Warmer climates, such as Southern California, are much more suited to the cultivation of perennial vegetables: food plants that grow for 3 years or longer. Examples of easy-to-grow perennial vegetables include tree collards (pictured), sorrel, new zealand spinach, artichokes, sunchokes, and much much more!
