Cucurbita maxima

25 seeds/pack   |   120 days

If you are looking for seed to grow great Halloween pumpkins go no further. We've grown these for several years now and love them for fall decorating. With careful cultivation, lots of space, compost and only allowing one fruit to set per plant you can grow some monster fruits up to 100 lbs and beyond. If you are looking for more modest sizes good for the kiddos these are also perfect. 

The flesh is edible and good but may not live up to other winter squash varieties bred specifically for flavor. However, they are known to keep well and livestock love them. The large seeds are great for roasting and toasting.

Brassica rapa

200 seeds/pack    | 45 days

This classic Asian green is fantastic in stir-fry or raw in salads. Bok Choy produces large green leaves with succulent white and crispy stems that cook up well. The leaves grow from a basal rosette allowing for continual harvest of outer leaves and stems while new growth appears from the center. These are especially tasty when lightly steamed with soy sauce or Braggs.

Zea mays

50 seeds/pack   |   80-90 days   NEW- limited quantity available

This stunning variety is another original piece of breeding work from Alan Kapular. With white kernels and purple cobs, the dried seeds truly resemble small jewels. The entire plant is purple and gorgeous. Ears are sweet and corny:)

We received stock seed from Seed Revolution Now and grew it in the summer of 2015 to trial against other sweet corn varieties. We then grew it again in 2016 with the intention of increasing the amount of seed and selecting the plants with the most purple. We plan to continue growing this gem and selecting for white ears and deep purple plants.

Brassica juncea

200 seeds/pack    |   45 days

These huge leaves with red and green coloring pack a spicy punch. The flavor is wasabi-like when eaten raw. The spice, however, diminishes when cooked and is great for stir-fry or soups. It will overwinter well in many climate zones not covered in snow. One thing I really appreciate about this green is that it is slow to bolt in the spring. When many of our other overwintered greens are going to seed we are still eating from this mustard. It is also the last to get aphids or harlequin beetle damage in the spring.

Heirloom red storage onion from Italy. Large 4-inch bulbs with flat tops. Shimmering red/pink skins. Sweet and spicy flavor. Outstanding storage onions and very beautiful.
