This Month in the Garden: New Edibles for 2020 from the Growers at Proven Winners!

THIS MONTH IN THE GARDEN
Welcome to This Month in the Garden! Proven Winners has a new line of edibles with some outstanding introductions for 2020. I've had the honor of testing them out in my garden this past summer and they are each deserving of recognition. Be sure to check them out in this spring's market!

Goodhearted Tempting Tomatoes 

This compact cherry-sized tomato is perfectly sized for growing in containers and hanging baskets and produces a hearty harvest of juicy semi-sweet fruit in July-August. The almost heart-shaped appearance of this tomato makes it attractive so it can serve as an ornamental and edible at the same time! This new variety will produce tomatoes for an extended period of time and thrive in heat and humidity. Fruit ripens in approximately 65 to 72 days. Plant in full sun and keep well watered. Height 8-12 ", Spread 12-18"
Fire Away Hot and Heavy Peppers
Fire Away Hot and Heavy is the first introduction of hot pepper by Proven Winners. This sweet and spicy snack pepper is compact enough to grow in a container and provides a sweet and spicy punch with a heat level that is slightly higher than a jalapeno! Fruits start off green and mature to yellow and then to bright red, but can be picked at any stage. Fruiting occurs approximately 65-72 days after planting, producing peppers that are approximately 3 inches in length. Plant in full sun and keep well watered. Height 16-24", Spread 12-18" 
Berried Treasure Strawberry (Introduced 2019)
This strawberry is truly a treasure which is both ornamental and functional. Lovely double pinkish-red flowers are followed by tasty fruits that keep going all summer long. The plant is compact enough to be grown in either a small garden or container and is hardy in USDA hardiness zones 4-9. I have been enjoying this beauty for its second year in the garden and it just keep getting better! Plant in full sun and provide moderate watering. Height 12-16", Spread 18-24"

I hope you enjoyed This Month in the Garden for May. Be sure to check out the Proven Winners website and stop by on the 1st. of each month for This Month in the Garden, as I share gardening tips, information and horticultural adventures! Linking with:  Floral FridaysMacro Monday 2Friday Photo JournalImage-in-ing Weekly Photo Link-Up and Dishing It & Digging It.

    1. The strawberry is my favorite out of all of these. Not only is the fruit delicious and fun to pick right off the plant, the deep pink blooms beforehand are fabulous!
