Five crops to harvest in November

Discover five of our favourite veg crops to harvest in November.

While the main autumn harvest may be over, November brings the start of winter crops.

As well as harvesting larger crops like swedes, cabbages and cauliflowers, you can also both sow and harvest quick-growing winter veg like spinach and Japanese brassicas such as mizuna. 

Take a look at five crops to harvest in November, below.

Carrots

Carrots are a treat to harvest as you unearth the colourful, swollen roots. Short on space? Here's how to grow carrots in a container. 

Brussels sprouts

Love them or hate them, Brussels sprouts are easy to grow. Let them sit through a few frosts before harvesting as this will produce a sweeter, nuttier flavour. 

Celeriac

Celeriac is a root crop with a distinctive nutty flavour, similar to celery. Rather than harvesting all your crop, any roots not being used straight away are best left in the ground until needed.

Endive

Endive is a leafy vegetable similar to chicory. Packed vitamins and fiber, endive is usually eaten in salads, soups or sautéed and added to dishes. 

Autumn and winter cabbages

Varieties of autumn and winter cabbages, such as 'Marner Large Red' (pictured) can be harvested in November. Enjoy this versatile vegetable raw, cooked or preserved.
