Fall Vegetable Planting Guide for Central Florida

Now is the time to start planting and planning here in Florida for the Fall season. Here’s a Fall Vegetable Planting Guide for Central Florida. 

Below are the vegetables and varieties that do well in central Florida and when to plant them. For the Transplant Ability column, vegetables marked with “I” are easy to transplant (aka – start indoors first), and those with “III” aren’t recommended for transplanting.

I also included a column for when I plan to plant everything. When I grow indoors I try to do it for a month before transplanting outdoors. Check out How to Start Seeds Indoors to learn more.

The only thing I’ve planted outdoors so far for this season is pumpkin, both Howden and Sugar Pie varieties. I haven’t been successful with pumpkin yet, so we’ll see how this season goes.

  1. This is super helpful Candice! Our peppers are really taking off, ironically, or not so ironically. Not sure if we can get away with starting the kale yet though. Hmmm.

    • Yay! What kinds are you growing right now? Interestingly enough we still have one kale plant still alive and kicking! Maybe try it in about a month..
