New Varieties for 2017
For 2017 we're adding 20 varieties to our listings, as well as 3 books. Sunn Hemp, a fast-growing leguminous summer cover crop, thrives in heat, tolerates drought, suppresses nematodes, and pulls nutrients from deep in the subsoil. Marigolds including Crackerjack will also suppress nematodes while attracting pollinators. Family heirloom Shows Okra produces well on semi-dwarf plants.
Donald Todd Half Runner beans have tender pods like old-time half-runner beans. South Carolina researchers bred two of our new varieties for disease resistance: TruHart-NR peppers for resistance to nematodes and Carolina Broadleaf mustard for resistance to bacterial blight.
Alabama Blue collards, Lacinato Rainbow kale, and Ashe County Pimento peppers are back this year. Our Hawai'i-grown seed for Thai Red Roselle has just passed it's germination test. Here in Virginia, we get good harvests of roselle pods for tea, but have trouble getting its seed to mature.
