Top 6 Vegetables to Grow in Coastal Area

Root crops like carrots, beets, and radishes thrive in coastal climates, requiring adequate water and loose soil. Beets may need boron supplementation to grow well.
The Brassica family includes broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, etc. Depending on the coastal regions and climates, these plants sprout indoors and are then transplanted after the last frost.
Lettuce and greens like spinach, chard, and arugula, among others, can be grown in coastal areas. But if you are close to the ocean or in a windy location, prefer to use a cloche.
Onions and leeks are suitable for coastal regions. Choose quality seeds like Expression and King Richards for onions, and Lincon for leeks, to improve yield.
Potatoes can also be grown in coastal regions. When cultivating potatoes, the right decision is to choose between varieties like fingerling, yellow fish, blue fish, and white flesh.
Peas can also be grown in coastal areas. For bush-style pea cultivation, Oregon-developed varieties like Oregon Sugar Pod II and Cascadia are best, as they are disease-resistant.
