Recommended Crops to Plant Mid to Late Summer for Fall Harvest

Summer Planting for Fall Harvest

Recommended Vegetable, Herb & Flower Crops

Johnny's Research team has compiled a list of crops to help growers plan which Vegetables, Herbs, and Flowers to plant in summer for fall harvest.

To determine when to plant, use our Planting Date Calculator for Fall Harvest Crops.

To determine when they'll be ready for harvest, be sure to take into consideration that plants grow more slowly as day length shortens in fall, adding about 14 days to the estimated days to maturity listed for each variety.


The cool weather of fall improves the flavor of many vegetables. Click through to select from the varieties to plant in mid to late summer for harvesting through the fall.
