Cedar, black locust, bald cypress, Pacific yew, teak, honey locust, walnut ($$$), black cherry and white oak are your best choices. Do not use plywood or chemically treated wood if you are growing food. I found this article from a woodsmith : https://thecraftsmanblog.com/choosing-rot-resistant-wood/
