Perennial vegetables have a several advantages to the home gardener.
- They don’t have to be replanted each season.
- Perennials usually withstand harsh climates and weather better than annuals.
- They tend to be higher in nutrition than most vegetables.
- Perennials often offer more than a single product for the table. For example, sweet potato provides us with delicious roots, but also offers a nutritious green vegetable. Moringa offers both edible leaves and pods.
Overall, perennial vegetables require less work and offer more benefit. This is especially true in warm climates. Minimize input….maximize output!
