Types of vegetable crops
A wide range of vegetables is grown commercially in Western Australia. Major crops include carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, capsicums, onions, broccoli, cauliflower and lettuce.
Other vegetables include pumpkin, sweet corn, zucchini, asparagus, beans, snow peas, cabbage, Asian vegetables, cucumbers, English spinach, sweet potato, spring onions, leeks, broccolini, swedes, turnips, beetroot and Brussels sprouts. Many other vegetables and herbs are also grown on a smaller scale.
The large geographic spread and range of production environments allows many vegetables to be grown year-round. Irrigation is used to ensure that crops are supplied with adequate water to produce high quality produce.
