Biquinho Pepper
Biquinho Pepper
Price: $3.00

New for 2018 - Meaning “Little Beak” in Portuguese, this is a unique variety from Brazil. Moderately hot, with lots of fruity flavour. The compact plants are great for container growing. Ours only grew about 18” tall, but each produced well over 100 little fruit. Great for drying, and also pickling; which is the traditional way to eat these in Brazil. 20 seeds

Inca Berry
Inca Berry
Price: $3.00

New for 2018 - (Physalis peruviana) aka Golden Berry, Cape Gooseberry. Although they look similar to their popular Ground Cherry cousins, the flavour of Inca Berries are very different. Intensely tart and sweet, and very fruity. Quite unlike any fruit I’ve tried before. Amazing fresh, dried or preserved into jams or compote. The fruit will store in their husks for a surprisingly long time. Later to mature than ground cherries, the plants should be started early, and ideally given protection from early Fall frosts to maximize production. 20 seeds

Fortna White Pumpkin
Fortna White Pumpkin
Price: $3.00

New for 2018 - (C. mixta) Long leafy vines, which bear huge harvests. Mid-sized pear-shaped fruit, with white skin. The thick yellow flesh isn’t particularly sweet or flavourful on it’s own, but I love to use it for squash soups. Also potential for ghost white jack-o-lanterns! I find C. mixta plants tend to be hardier and easier to grow than other squash species. A family heirloom, from the Fortna family of Pennsylvania. 20 seeds

Lebabese Zaatar
Lebabese Zaatar
Price: $3.00

New for 2018 - From the village of Bhamdoun in the mountains of Lebanon. These seeds were gifted to me last spring by Niki Jabbour, whose mother in law uses it for zaatar blends, pickling and many other dishes. I'm honoured to grow and propagate this special seed here in NS! We're pretty sure it's Satureji hortensis, the same species at Summer Savoury. Easy to grow annual, it thrives in our climate. Grows to about 24" tall. Start the seeds indoors in April, and transplant out when the warm days arrive in early June. 100+ seeds

Tokyo Bekana
Tokyo Bekana
Price: $3.00

New for 2018 - (B. rapa) Mild and tender asian mustard, this one reminds me of a mustard trying really hard to be a lettuce. The large ruffled leaves are quite sweet, and they don’t turn bitter or mustard-y in warm weather. They make a great base for salads, and also good sautéed like bok choy. Cold hardy and fast growing, ideal planted in late summer for fall and winter harvests. 250 seeds (1 g)

Komatsuna
Komatsuna
Price: $3.00

New for 2018 - (B. rapa) aka Spinach Mustard. Large, smooth, dark-green leaves. Great for salads, stir fries and soups. Similar to bok choy, but without the thick stems. Mild flavour; sweetest in cold weather and slightly more mustard-y when it’s warm. Fast and easy to grow. They bolt during the long days of summer, I’ve found they grow best planted in late summer for fall and winter greens. Approx. 250 seeds (1 g)

New for 2018 - (B. oleracea) The deepest, darkest open-pollinated red kale I’ve seen. Somewhat slower and less vigourous than other varieties, but they make up for it with in beauty and hardiness. Makes an irresistible red kale salad. Approx. 125 seeds (0.5 g), Limited Supply

Bear Necessities Kale
Bear Necessities Kale
Price: $3.00

New for 2018 - (B. napus) The frilliest kale I've seen yet. The young leaves start out looking similar to Red Russian, but quickly develop into some of the frilliest kale leaves I’ve ever seen. Mostly red-blushed green in colour, but the plants can vary. Sweet and tender, and extremely cold hardy. A newer variety, developed by Tim Peters from a rare cross of Russian/Siberian Kale and Mizuna. Approx. 250 seeds (1 g)
