Frost Tolerant Vegetables

Frost-tolerant (also called "cool-season") vegetables stand up to frosty temperatures, extending your gardening season earlier in spring and later into fall—some crops will even overwinter!

Crop frost-tolerance varies between cultivars. Greens like kale and spinach with savoyed, wavy, curled, or textured leaves are generally hardier than their smooth-leaved counterparts. Mulching already frost-tolerant root crops like beets, carrots, leeks, radishes, and parsnips helps to further protect them when the mercury drops, some even surviving the winter.
