Palestinian Kusa Squash - Annapolis Seeds
Palestinian Kusa Squash
Price: $3.00

New for 2020 - (C. pepo) - Kusa are the Middle Eastern cousin of the Italian zucchini. They're delicious is many of the same ways. I hear stuffing and roasting them when small is the traditional method, although I've also enjoyed eating them at a slightly larger size. Bush plants are vigourous but non-vining. Immensely productive, try to keep them picked to extend the fruiting season. 20 seeds

Cosmonaut Volkov Tomato - Annapolis Seeds
Cosmonaut Volkov Tomato
Price: $3.00

New for 2020 - My friend Corey gave me these seeds last year, they've long been a favourite of hers. I'm glad I gave them a try! A short row of plants yielded buckets of medium-large fruit; richly flavoured and meaty. It was our most productive variety in 2019. Heirloom from Ukraine, named after Soviet cosmonaut Vladislav Volkov. 30 seeds

Sugar Rush Peach Hot Pepper - Annapolis Seeds
Sugar Rush Peach Hot Pepper
Price: $3.00

New for 2020 - We experimented with a number of new hot peppers this past season. Sugar Rush Peach was definitely the standout! They mature from yellow to a lovely peach-orange. Loads of flavour. They're sweet, fruity and fairly juicy. Also very hot! Medium-high heat levels; not as hot as a cayenne, but not far off. They make a delicious fermented hot sauce, chopped and fermented with salt just like sauerkraut. 25 seeds

Litchi Tomato - Annapolis Seeds
Litchi Tomato
Price: $3.00

New for 2020 - Do you love cherry tomatoes, but just wish they were... spikier? If so, we have the plant for you!

A distinct species (Solanum sisymbriifolium) related to tomatoes and eggplant. The fruit are a delicious balance of sweet and tart, I'd describe their flavour as along the lines of a sour cherry with a hint of tomato. Every part of the plant is thorny, from the young leaves to the flower stems. They like similar warm conditions as eggplant or peppers. The plants reach about 4 feet in hight, with clusters of showy flowers in mid summer, followed by fruit which start in August. They seem resistant to light frosts in the fall. 30 seeds

Strawberry Popcorn - Annapolis Seeds
Strawberry Popcorn
Price: $3.00

New for 2020 - The plants are fairly compact, reaching a maximum hight of 5-6 feet by the end of summer. Despite getting flattened by Hurricane Dorian, our popcorn patch still gave us a good harvest. The cobs continued to mature from their horizontal position. They were mostly mature when we picked them in October, and ripened fully after a few weeks spread on trays. And yes, I'm afraid they pop white. 75+ seeds

Yorkshire Hero Pea - Annapolis Seeds
Yorkshire Hero Pea
Price: $3.00

New for 2020 - Old and rare heirloom, I think we're currently the only commercial source for this variety. It dates back to at least 1865, and it was a popular variety in both the UK and North America through the late 19th century. But as trendy new varieties gained popularity, Yorkshire Hero gradually fell to the wayside. I was given a small sample of seeds from a genebank some years ago, and I've been a fan ever since. I'm excited to have enough seed to offer at last!

Compact plants grow to 2 1/2 feet. They're impressively productive, and really good flavour too.

New for 2020 - Unique soup pea, with a dark eye on the hilum (the spot where the pea attaches to the pod). One of the highest yielding dry peas I've grown. Tall plants climb to 6+ feet. Very rare. I brought a packet of seeds home from Will Bonsall's collection in 2013. Happy to have enough seed to share this year!

Lupini Bean - Annapolis Seeds
Lupini Bean
Price: $3.00

New for 2020 - Lupinus albus - Lupini are an annual relative to our common wild lupin. With big, edible, protein-rich seeds. Commonly grown around the Mediterranean, but rare in North America. I've been growing them for the past five years, selecting from the plants that do best for us in Nova Scotia.

They like cool weather, sow them around the same time as peas. Sturdy stalks reach about 3 feet, with small soft-purple flowers by mid-summer. The seeds are very bitter, and need to be rinsed and processed the right way to make them delicious. I'm still learning the process myself, I hope to report back soon! 20+ seeds - Limited supply this year

Amarylla Tomatillo
Price: $3.00

New for 2020 - The earliest tomatillo I've yet found. The plants are relatively compact, growing about 2 feet high and 3 feet wide. The first fruit began to ripen for us at the end of July, with peak production at the end of August. Much sweeter than the typical tomatillo, they're delicious fresh or cooked. This awesome variety comes from Poland. 30 seeds
