Organic Utopia

Gardening Tips

Strange as it sounds, we want you to put us out of business! Organic Utopia is committed to spreading the word about organic food. Yes, we feature organic fruits and vegetables from the area's best farmers, but we think growing your own is even better! Here are some tips on when to begin planting in your area. When deciding which crops to plant, the first step is to decide what zone of the country you live in. Many seed companies will refer to these zones on their packages or catalogs.

Some people can't have too much information, here then, are the Latin Names and Family for some of our most popular vegetables:

Latin Name Common Name Family
Daucus carota Wild carrot Umbelliferae
Brassica oleracea botrytis cymosa Sprouting broccoli Cruciferae
Brassica oleracea capitata Cabbage Cruciferae
Spinacia oleracea Spinach Chenopodiaceae
Zea mays Sweet corn Gramineae
Lycopersicon esculentum Tomato Solanaceae
Capsicum annuum Sweet pepper Solanaceae
Cucumis sativus Cucumber Cucurbitaceae
