Specialty Vegetables

Specialty vegetables

B.C. growers produce a variety of vegetables that are traditionally associated with regions outside of North America. Many of these vegetables are of Asian origin. These crops belong to a range of plant families, including cole crops, legumes and cucurbits. Most crops are short-season crops and are generally grown in small blocks.

Brassica crops grown include Sui choy (Chinese cabbage), Bok choy, Yow choy, Gai lan (Chinese broccoli), and Gai choy (mustard greens). Others include A-Choy (related to lettuce), She dow (snow pea) and Lo Bok (Asian radish).

Growing Specialty Vegetables

Refer to the sections on Cole Crops, Peas, Green Bunching Onions, Radishes, and Turnips in this guide for variety recommendations.

See your seed dealer for the most recent variety recommendations.

Because these vegetables belong to many plant families, there are no specific fertilizer recommendations. Use the Vegetable Production Guide: Nutrient Management (PDF) for general information on nutrient management, and take regular soil samples.

For Leafy Vegetables and Brassica Vegetables (Crop group 5A):  use seed treated with Apron XL LS to control Pythium damping off.  Do not use for leafy greens grown in the greenhouse.  

For Brassica Vegetables (Crop group 5-13) including Chinese and Napa cabbage; Cucurbit vegetables (Crop group 9) including Chinese waxgourd and edible gourd; Cress, Chinese mustard cabbage, Chinese broccoli, and Kohlrabi: use seed treated with Apron MAXX RTA to control damping off caused by Pythium spp., Fusarium spp. and Rhizoctonia spp.

Specialty Vegetable Disease Management

There are a few fungicides registered for these crops (see table below). Cultural practices to reduce disease problems include:

  • Crop rotation of at least 3 years
  • Use resistant varieties (if available).
  • Use certified disease-free seed or hot water seed treatments as described in the Vegetable Production Guide: Planting (PDF).
  • Use healthy transplants grown in clean plug trays and sanitized greenhouses.
  • Control disease vectors such as aphids and weed hosts.
  • Rogue out infected plants.
  • Avoid moving in the field when foliage and soil are wet (to reduce the spread of bacterial diseases).
  • Reduce overhead irrigation.
  • Deep-plow crop residues into the soil.
  • Eliminate cull piles.

RootShield WP (Trichoderma harzianum Rifai strain KRL-AG2) is a biological fungicide for the suppression of Root Rot in greenhouse vegetable transplants.  When applied to transplants, greenhouse planting mix or soil, the product grows into plant roots as they develop to protect roots against Pythium, Rhizoctonia and Fusarium. 

Suppression

  • Suspend RootShield WP using a spray volume of 30 to 45 g/100 L and apply at the rate of 55 to 110 g per cubic metre (loose) of greenhouse potting mix, soil or planting beds. 
  • Apply using hand-held backpack or ground spray equipment. 
  • Becomes active when soil temperatures are above 10 degrees C and is not effective while soils remain cold.
  • More effective at suppression of root rot in neutral or acidic soils.  
  • Should be used within 12 months of the date of manufacture.  
  • Contains the allergens wheat and sulfites

RootShield WP is used in organics.  It is OMRI-USA listed.  OMRI-USA = Organic Materials Review Institute of USA.  Check with your certification body before using in an organic operation.
