New Varieties for 2017

Sunn Hemp Shows Okra Crackerjack Marigold

For 2017 we've added 20 varieties to our listings. 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.

TruHart-NR peppers Carolina Broadleaf mustard Donald Todd Half-Runner Bean

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.


Returning varieties

Alabama Blue collards Ashe County Pimento pepper Thai Red Roselle

Alabama Blue collards, Lacinato Rainbow kale, and Ashe County Pimento peppers are back this year. Our Hawai'i-grown seed for Thai Red Roselle recently 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.
