Organic Breen, Spretnak & Aerostar Lettuce, Organic Napoli and Ya-Ya carrots. From the High Mowing Organic Seeds' Trials Fields.
Organic Allure F1 Hybrid Corn - Seductive sweetness in a high-quality bicolor! Allure is the first organically available synergistic sweet corn, combining confectionary sweetness with excellent seedling vigor. Sturdy stalks grow 6-7’ tall in an impressively uniform stand. When the trials crew harvested sweet corn from our 2013 trials, Allure was the variety most commonly set aside for personal reserves and the preferred one to “sample” during harvest.
Organic Northeaster Pole Bean - The buttery flavor and hearty texture of this Romano bean will take your garden by storm! So named for its suitability in short-seasoned climes, Northeaster is consistently one of the earliest pole beans in our trials. Flattened, pale green pods grow 7-8” in length on tall, vigorous vines. Our 2012 trials crew loved picking this variety because plants climb well and beans are easy to distinguish from the foliage.
Organic Janvel F1 Hybrid Cauliflower - Gorgeous, high-quality heads with nice dome shape and excellent uniformity. In our spring cauliflower trials, Janvel outperformed Fremont in both yield and presentation, and had a slightly longer harvest window. Perfectly formed heads range from 6-8” in diameter and are well-protected by tight wrapper leaves. Vigorous plants have tall leaves which provide excellent sunburn protection for curds, resulting in perfect, white heads.
Organic Silver Slicer Cucumber - A creamy white slicing cucumber with excellent flavor and lovely smooth skin! Thirty-five seedsters can’t be wrong: Silver Slicer cut through the competition to take not the silver but the gold in our 2013 cucumber taste test. Hands down winner due to its mild flavor, juicy texture and thin skin.
Organic Diamond Eggplant - We were so excited to discover this variety in our trials fields and it has really proven itself a standout for several seasons now. This OP eggplant is a very prolific and early producer. The slender, attractive dark purple fruit hang in clusters for easy picking. Diamond has a mild flavor and lacks bitterness as well as having a fine, creamy texture. This is the one to grow if you want eggplants in a short season.
Musque de Provence Pumpkin - Gorgeous French variety also known as Fairytale. Richly colored green background and orange glow become increasingly buff when ripe. Fruits are large, often weighing 15-25 lbs, flat in shape and deeply ribbed. This edible pumpkin, often enjoyed cooked, is also traditionally eaten fresh. Cut from the middle like a wedge of cheese and slice very thinly. The flavor is exceptionally complex and sweet with a nice light crunch.
