How many fruits and vegetables grow wild

Heat requirement of vegetables during cultivation

The heat requirement of vegetables during cultivation varies. These overviews show which vegetables grow best at which temperatures.

  • Most vegetables prefer warm, not too hot days and cool nights.
  • If the nights are very warm, the plants breathe a large part of the energy they gain from sunlight during the day.
  • Most of the vegetables grown in our latitudes already grow at temperatures of around 5 ° C, but in slow motion.
  • The warmer it is, the faster they take off.
