New Varieties for 2014
In the salad department, we have a gorgeous new mustard green, Ruby Streaks, and a new Taiwanese lettuce, Sword Leaf or Yu Mai Tsai, with long, pointed leaves and a distinctive flavor. Mexican Sour Gherkins are another great addition to salads as well as for snacking. They are to cucumbers as cherry tomatoes are to beefsteaks.
We're adding a green bean, Maxibel, to our offerings becuase we've been getting requests for it for years and finally got a good supply. It's one of the best french gourmet beans. The Piggott Pea, a Louisiana family heirloom southern pea from the Piggott family, is also now available. Piggott peas are early, productive, drought-resistant, and flavorful.
We'll also have two new marigolds becoming available by mid-December.
