The Benefits of Hot House Produce

Hot Houses, which are Green Houses with supplemental heat, have revolutionized the way we grow produce. Here's why they are so valuable:

Resource Efficiency

Controlled environment agriculture in Hot Houses reduces the need for excessive water and energy, contributing to sustainability and cost savings.

Types of Hot House Food Crops

Typical Hot House food crops fall into three primary categories: vine crops, berries, and leafy greens. Each of these crops requires different cultivation techniques and Hot House designs that suit their unique challenges.

Vine Crops

Vine crops, including tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers are the most prevalent food in the Hot House industry. These crops grow vertically, usually on a piece of suspended string. A 10,000-square-foot tomato Hot House can typically hold 2,000 to 2,500 tomato vines. Grafted rootstocks on fruiting vines increase nutrient uptake and yields.

Strawberries

Hot House Berries

Hot House berries offer an exciting opportunity for growers looking to diversify their portfolios with high-value produce. Varieties such as strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries are grown differently due to their unique characteristics. A 10,000-square-foot strawberry Hot House can hold 10,000 to 20,000 strawberry plants.

Herb Plants

Leafy Greens and Herbs

Leafy greens and herbs are a quickly growing market, especially in urban areas where localized food production is ideal. Crops like lettuce, kale, and basil thrive in the Hot House environment, with high domestic demand. They require less substrate and Hot House know-how to grow efficiently. A 10,000-square-foot lettuce Hot House can hold 25,000 to 35,000 heads of lettuce.
