There is much interest these days in eating locally grown produce. This interest is likely in part due to economic times, but also consumer concern about the origin of the food we eat. While it is certainly fun to support your local farmers market, there is still nothing quite like the joy of growing your own vegetables. Jade Gardens is the retail arm of Chow’s Farms – a well-known produce farm in the greater Toronto area. As such – we know all the ins and outs of vegetable growing. Did you know that you don’t need a huge yard to have a vegetable garden – many veggies can even be container grown on a deck or balcony. Nor do you need be a master gardener – vegetables are actually some of the easiest plants to grow. At Jade Gardens we have a huge variety of seeds available and a renown selection of vegetable box plants including some of the harder to find ethnic vegetable box plants. Specialty and ethnic vegetables are defined as vegetables and /or herbs that were not traditionally grown in North America. We carry a large array of these plants, such as, Okra,


Malabar Spinach

Malabar Spinach, San Choy, Ong Choy, Bitter Melon, Karela, Dit Gah, Winter Melon, Chinese Okra (Cee Gwa) and much more. New for this year, we have Potato plants already grown and ready to plant. These high yielding plants come in Yukon Gold, Red Pontiac and Norland varieties. If you want to plant the traditional way, we also sell seed potatoes. Another continuing trend is heirloom vegetables.

A variety of tomatoes

Heirloom tomatoes were a trendy luxury in the past but now readily available for you to plant in your own garden. Heirloom tomatoes are the vegetable that made us demand flavor from our vegetables. In addition to having a wide variety of standard tomatoes, such as, Beefsteak, Glamour, Roma, JetStar, Sweet Million etc. and some unusual varieties such as, Orange Blossom and Lemon Boy, we carry an excellent selection of Heirloom Tomatoes, such as, Brandywine, Yellow Brandywine, Black Prince, Great White, Cherokee Purple and Cherokee Green.
