Due to the large variety of types and cultivars, it is important to identify local consumer wants or needs. The following list is illustrative only. There are too many varieties to list and most have not been tested locally. Individual or on-farm testing of new varieties allows growers to find cultivars that adapted to the local climatic and environmental conditions found throughout Utah. Always compare a new variety to your existing variety. Seed dealers can provide other options.
