Best veggie varietals for home gardeners?

We are experienced vegetable gardeners in US Zone 5b (growing season ~5 months). The site is a raised bed garden with full sun and lovely compost-enriched soil. We belong to a CSA, so the basics are covered. What crazy varietals should we try this year? Cultivars that are good for preserving are especially welcome.

Viburnum prunifolium
Viburnum prunifolium (Blackhaw Viburnum) and Viburnum lentago (Nannyberry Viburnum) are similar and can be easily confused, but have the following differences:

Blackhaw Viburnum has smooth-margined wide petioles, with nearly entire leaves that are less susceptible to powdery mildew, and have good to excellent fall color, with the emergent stems having a pair of miniature blue-green basal auricles that abscise by late Spring, with a growth habit that is more rounded and very densely twiggy with age, and plump Winter floral buds that have a very short "stalk" and short acute tip
Nannyberry Viburnum has warty-margined wide petioles, with larger leaves that are serrated and become significantly infected with powdery mildew, and yield average to poor mixed fall color, while its growth habit is more upright, vigorous, and less twiggy, and plump Winter floral buds occur on elongated "stalks" with a long, acuminate tip that resembles a duck's bill
