The Regenstein Fruit & Vegetable Garden demonstrates the best ways to grow the most ornamental and delicious plants for our area.

Aromatic herbs, shiny peppers, juicy grapes, and crisp apples are just a few of the 400 different edible plants grown here, in beautifully landscaped beds. Not only does this garden tempt your appetite, but your green thumb as well.

Here you will learn the best berries, large fruits, vegetables, and herbs for Chicago gardens, and also the most effective gardening methods to grow them to perfection. Year-round programs, festivals, demonstrations, exhibits, and tastings in the garden provide visitors with ongoing learning experiences. Don't miss the family drop-in activities, featured during summer weekends.

This garden closes daily at 6 p.m. (Closed at 4 p.m. on August 15 and September 5 for a ticketed event).

The Garden Chef Series is a weekend highlight from May to October.
