Marion Rutabaga - Annapolis Seeds
Marion Rutabaga (Out of stock)

(B. napus) - A great winter storage Rutabaga. Delicious mashed like potatoes, roasted or used in soups. I think rutabagas are perhaps one of the most dependable food sources that you can grow, they’re both high yielding and are seldom badly damaged by insects. Approx. 300 seeds (1 g)

Hollow Crown Parsnip (Out of stock)
Hollow Crown Parsnip (Out of stock)

One of the oldest heirloom varieties of parsnip, hollow crown is still hard to beat. Classically sweet and mild nutty flavour and robust, long white roots. While it takes a long season to grow parsnips, they are relatively care free once plants are bigger than the surrounding weeds and thinned to 3 inches apart. We like to leave most of them in the ground until late winter/early spring, then dig them up to enjoy their extra sweet flavour. Several hundred seeds

Lutz Green Leaf Beet (out of stock)
Lutz Green Leaf Beet (out of stock)

The best beet for winter storage. Large and slightly lumpy, with very fine red flesh. The solid green leaves (no purple) are especially good as summertime greens. Space plants farther apart than other beet varieties.

The favourite beet of Cindy and David of Pleasant Hill Farm. Lutz seed became scarce in recent years, spurring on the need for them to have their own supply. After selection and overwintering, their 2nd year beets were grown out for seed by Chris at Yonder Hill Farm. (Photo credits: Chris Sanford/Yonder Hill Farm) 60+ seeds (1.5 g)
