Vegetable Days to Harvest

October 6, 2018

On the seed packet you will find information on when you can expect flowers or fruit from a mature plant, also known as days-to-harvest. Days-to-harvest varies, depending on whether you direct seed or transplant your edible crops.

If you direct seed your crop into the garden or the container in which it will grow indoors, the days-to-harvest number is calculated from the date of germination. For crops that are first grown as a transplant that will be repotted, the days-to-harvest is calculated from the date of transplanting.
