The decrease in temperature during the winter doesn’t mean your vegetable garden needs to go on hiatus. While the following types of vegetables might differ from warm weather vegetable crops, there are still plenty of cold weather vegetable crops that will grow and thrive.
Vegetables in the onion family, for example, are great cold weather candidates because they are a self-sufficient vegetable. Vegetables in the cabbage family, such as Huron, OS Cross and Danish Ball Head, are also viable options for your winter vegetable garden.
Below is a complete list of cold weather vegetable crops. Remember that a little preparation goes a long way, so gardeners can start in August to harvest in the winter.
Cold Weather Vegetables

- Coriander (cilantro)
- Mustard greens
- Pak choi (Bok choy)
