Plant Varieties to
Bush-type wax beans such as 'Gold Rush' or 'Indy Gold' also mature
in that time frame. You might also be able to harvest some of the
early maturing cucumbers such as 'Raider' or 'Bush Champion.' Some
of the burpless cucumbers also mature quickly, including 'All Season
Burpless,' 'Tasty Jade,' 'Sweet Success' or 'Sweet Burpless.'
Summer squash such as zucchini, patty pan and yellow squash all
mature pretty quickly as well.
Cool-season crops such as broccoli, cabbage, kohlrabi, radishes,
beets, carrots, turnips, lettuce and spinach are often planted from
early July to early August for a fall harvest. Choose fast-maturing
varieties that have 55 days or less to maturity. Good varieties for
fall harvest include:
'Green Comet,' 'Packman'
'Early Purple Vienna,' 'Early White Vienna'
'Red Ace,' 'Red Cloud,' 'Forono,' 'Golden Beet'
'Coreless Amsterdam,' 'Thumbelina'
'Renegade,' 'Space,' 'Melody'
