About This Project

Perennial vegetables are edible plants that regrow in the same place every year. They are a key component of sustainable regenerative food systems and previous research indicates that they are very nutritious and can contribute to healthier diets. However, there is a lack of comprehensive research regarding plant nutrient content. Our aim is to fill the knowledge gaps about the nutrients found in perennial vegetables, with a focus on varieties grown in colder climates.
