Sugar Rush Peach Hot Pepper - Annapolis Seeds
Sugar Rush Peach Hot Pepper (out of stock)

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 (out of stock)

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

Fish Pepper - Annapolis Seeds
Fish Pepper (out of stock)

New for 2020 - Unique hot pepper, with variegated leaves and fruit. The immature fruit have vivid stripes, before ripening to red. They're medium hot with a deep rich flavour. An African American heirloom from the Chesapeake Bay region. Often paired with seafood, hence the name. Although I like to also think the fruit resemble shimmering wild fish.

Newburg Onion - Annapolis Seeds
Newburg Onion (out of stock)

New for 2020 - Very productive and an excellent keeper. Newburg was developed by seed breeder Alan Kapular, stabilized from a European hybrid specifically for organic production. Considered one of the very best OP onions, competing with many hybrids in terms of production. They kept beautifully in our pantry last winter, staying firm until spring. 150+ seeds

Ashwagandha - Annapolis Seeds
Ashwagandha (out of stock)

New for 2020 - Withania somnifera - An important herb in Ayurvedic traditions. The roots are used medicinally for their adaptogenic and nervine properties. In warmer climates ashwagandha grows as a woody perennial. But here in Nova Scotia it's possible to grow as an annual, and although the roots will be smaller they're still worthwhile.

Start seeds in early Spring, and treat them like you would pepper plants (fun fact: ashwagandha is in the family Solanacea, the same as peppers and tomatoes). They need a long growing season to size up, covering plants with cloches to protect from early fall frosts can help. We grew about 20 plants last year, and got plenty of roots! 20 seeds - Limited supply
