The Three Amigos Growers is a nursery in Davie, FL which offers plants adapted to the South Florida garden conditions. Here is a list:
- Collards. These can be perennial in South Florida, I have Georgia collards growing strong for 3 years now.
- Eggplant Dancer, Ping Tung, Millionaire. Will have to check them out. Have in mind that eggplants hate the nematodes in Florida soil. Containers may be a better option.
- Kale Garlic. Not sure about this one.
- Mustard Greens, Mustard Red. Easy to grow but you have to cook them, raw, they have a bite.
- Peppers Crimson King, Mini Chocolate, Padron. Not sure about these.
- Lettuce, Salanova. Not sure about this one.
- Longevity Spinach.
- Sorrel, French. Tried to grow it but it did not do well for me. May try again.
- Tomato, Everglades, Super Sweet 100. Everglades tomato grows excellent in South Florida, it self-seeds and becomes perennial. Highly recommended. Have in mind it's a small tomato though - the size of a large blueberry.
