Best green when ripe - yield?

ReedBaizeJuly 26, 2012

Limited in my personal space to twelve plants. I cannot sacrifice yield. I know it varies from area to area but, of the varieties listed below, which have you had the highest yield from? These are the varieties I currently have seeds from.

Green Giant

Moldovan Green

Emerald Evergreen

Malachite Box


Aunt Ruby's German Green

Big Zebra

Dorothy's Green

Spear's Tennessee Green

Cherokee Green

Malachite Box, Cherokee Green, and Green Giant are most likely to produce a crop of the varieties you have listed. This takes into account your location in TX.

Suggest you broaden your horizon. There will be a new one available next year from Sandhill named Bold Green. Get a few seed and try it.

Agree with Darrel in my zone 5 area as well and in addition to those three I think I'd add Dorothy's Green as well.

Sometime I think you should try some of the GWripe cherries and of those I suggest.

Green Doctors and/or Green Doctors Frosted
Green Zebra Cherry ( not from the variety Green Zebra)
Verde Claro

All of the above cherries are very high yielding.

Carolyn, who notes that a couple of us predicted the GW ripe fad would follow the black fad and that has happened and I couldn't be happier since I've grown one heck of a lot of GWripe varieties and love the tastes.
