Sicilian Serpent Gourd - Cucuzza Squash - Annapolis Seeds
Sicilian Serpent Gourd (out of stock)

New for 2019 - Lagenaria siceraria - aka: Serpente di Sicilia, Cucuzza Squash. Probably the coolest new plant we grew on the farm last year. Picked young they're like the most delectable of zucchini; we feasted on them all through August. Their huge vines sprawled in every direction, and carried on through the drought and cucumber beetles. The bugs weren't even interested. They seem much hardier than the classic squash species.

When they reach full woody maturity they can be made into fall decorations, stylish accessories or didgeridoos (yes, I’ve tried it!). Their large white flowers open in the evening, and in warmer climates are pollinated by moths. I like to pick male flowers and hand pollinate the females as part of my evening rounds in the garden. Limited supply - 10 seeds

Sea Buckthorn Seed - Annapolis Seeds - Nova Scotia Canada
Sea Buckthorn Mix (Out of stock)

New for 2019 - Hippophae rhamnoides - Sea Buckthorn is an extremely hardy and drought tolerant thorny shrub, native to the coasts and steppe lands of Eurasia. Lauded as a superfood in recent years, its berries are rich in nutrients and antioxidants. Simultaneously sweet, tart and bitter; their flavour is difficult to compare to anything else. They happily grow in the poorest and sandiest of soils, and fix nitrogen (although not a legume). They have been used for erosion control on sandy coastlines, and are popular in permaculture-inspired landscaping and food forests.

Sea Buckthorn is relatively easy to grow from seed, compared to other shrubs. They don't require stratification. These seeds are from Twisted Brook Farm, collected from their plantings of improved Canadian and Russian cultivars. A mix of seeds from all parent lines, some of which are juicing varieties and others are oil varieties. Plants grown from seed are inherently variable, and will be 50-50 male and female. A diverse mix for the experimental grower! 10+ seeds

Lebanese Metki Cucumber - Annapolis Seeds - Nova Scotia Canada
Lebanese Metki Cucumber
Price: $3.00

New for 2019 - C. melo - This awesome plant is a botanical oddball; it’s the same species as cantaloupe but looks and tastes much more like a cucumber. They’re finer fleshed than the average cuke, with subtle fruity notes. Popular in Lebanon, but very hard to find in Canada. Niki Jabbour generously shared these seeds with me a few years back, and I’m excited to be able to offer them this year! 25 seeds
