Sweeter Yet is known for great flavor and it has been popular for many years. It is early to mature and can be harvested between 10 and 12 inches. It is completely non-bitter with a thin skin, and it is burpless. In order to have straight fruit the plants should be grown on a trellis, but they can also be grown on the ground. 48 days.
If you love Sun Gold or Sun Sugar, you will also love Sun Orange. It has unbelievably good flavor. The breeder has taken the same great flavor package, but increased the size of the fruit, and improved crack resistance. High yield potential is obvious once you see the elegant trusses brimming with fruit. Indeterminate. 65 days.
This is the first-ever All America winning echalion shallot. It has a beautiful copper-pink outer skin, and an even more attractive rosy-purple inner skin. French chefs love this type of shallot because they are easy to peel, have more interesting flavors, and caramelize easily when heated. Perfect to plant in the garden, or sell at a farmers market. Plants reach 24 to 30 inches, and the bulb is 4-5 inches in length. Can be grown in a container as well. Space 3 to 4 inches apart. Transplant in March, or direct seed in April or May. 90 to 100 days.
This pepper is big, with thick flesh - 4.5 x 1 inch. Pungency is 2000 to 5000 scoville units and perfect for poppers, stuffed with cheese and fresh cilantro. They tend to set fruit for an extended period. Resistant to PVY and TMV. 70 to 75 days.
Cayenne Sweetness looks hot and you will be tempted to think it is even after harvest, but it has neither heat or pungency, only the sweet taste of the true flavor of a cayenne. Bright 5 inch pods can be eaten fresh, or mixed in a salad. Cut them up and add to an omelet, or saute them with onions or shallots for a special side dish. 75 days.
Scarlet Bandit is a bunching variety that you will enjoy growing and eating. Some call it the most beautiful onion in the world. Scarlet bulbs with red and white speckles that will dazzle and impress you when dressing up a salad. The bandit can overwinter in mild climates.

Sylvia has a compact plant that can grow in small spaces in your garden – 18 to 24 inches in height. And surprisingly, those compact plants produce up to 50 sprouts per stalk. Roasted, grilled or sauteed, you can’t beat the flavor of this powerhouse. A cup of them will give you nearly all of the vitamin C & K that you need in a day. Harvest after the first fall frost for best flavor. 140 to 145 days.
Jolene is more than just a beautiful tomato with smooth shoulders and a pretty petite blossom scar. She offers large, 8-10 ounce fruit, that have excellent flavor, and beautiful deep red color. She also has a hidden strength - resistance to Fusarium Crown Rot, Verticillium wilt, and intermediate resistance to Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl virus. Trialing in a dozen states has proven the productivity potential of this new tomato, and particularly in the South Eastern US. Roadside farmers will appreciate the marketable yield potential.

You will be impressed with this bicolor tomato, which is one of the best tasting from our trial visits this year. It has heirloom eating quality, but it has been selected for better yield, larger fruit, and mouthwatering taste. You can take one step back in time to taste the heirlooms of years gone by, and then you can step into a breeder’s breakthrough for greater productivity. It is simply a great selection from heirlooms. Indeterminate. 85 days.
Yardlong beans arose in Africa, and were domesticated in Asia. Their ability to thrive in sandy soils with low moisture made them an important crop in hot arid regions. They do not tolerate cold, so be sure and plant in warm soil – above 65 degrees. Plant 1 inch deep, and 4 to 5 inches apart. The vines grow up to 3 feet and do best on a trellis. Yardlong beans can reach 25 inches, but they taste better when harvested at 19 inches. Unlike green beans, the tender, stringless pods taste the best when sauteed, stir-fried, or deep-fried. Harvest in 70 to 80 days.
Champion is an improved Vates type collard. It holds quality 2 weeks longer, and has improved bolting tolerance, and is more cold tolerant. Cook them in a stir-fry, add them to chili, put them in salads and slaws. Or just cook in oil with some black pepper and your favorite meat dish. 75 days.
