Horticultural Crops

When it comes to freshness, quality, and variety, North Carolina horticultural crops can't be beat. We produce 21 major fruit and vegetable crops and countless specialty crops throughout the state. In addition, our greenhouse, Christmas tree, and nursery industries are among the largest in the country.

North Carolina offers quality, proximity, and consistent supply. Our fertile soils and climate are conducive to premium quality. We are located within 24 hours of 65% of the United States population. Buyers may traverse North Carolina production areas from the eastern coastal plain westward to the mountains for a consistent six month supply of many vegetable commodities.

The North Carolina fruit, vegetable, and nursery industries have many suppliers who can meet various needs. Additional information and lists of suppliers are included on individual commodity pages.
