Colorado is somewhat of a high elevation state. Much of the region consists of mountains, and the climate, as a result, can be quite unforgiving for plants that need a bit more stability and warmth. Also, since Colorado has a dryer climate than in many other parts, some plants and vegetables simply won’t grow properly there, and you have to make sure you select the most appropriate ones, if you want to gain a good result.
That being said, there are still a lot of veggies that can absolutely thrive in the state of Colorado. Some of them include turnips, beets, spinach, cabbage, cauliflower and parsnips for the cool season and eggplant, corn, cucumbers, peppers, beans and tomatoes for the warmer time of the year, using a great garden compost will help produce a bigger crop too.
Some rarer vegetables can also survive quite well in the colder areas of Colorado. These include leeks, chards and brussel sprouts. As for the warmer regions, squash, melons and various types of peppers can be a great choice as well.
When you decide on the right types of veggies to select for the Colorado climate, make sure to pay close attention to the weather and temperature throughout the year, as well as the trend of what the weather looked like in recent years. That way, you’ll have the best chance to get a good crop without having to worry that the weather will end up destroying it.
