  1. MARY WASHINGTON ASPARAGUS

    MARY WASHINGTON ASPARAGUS (heirloom)

    As late as 1869 seedsman Peter Henderson maintained that there were no separate varieties of asparagus and that differences were based on soil conditions. He later changed his mind. The Mary and Martha Washington varieties were developed around 1900 for greater disease resistance. From the 1930 DM Ferry seed catalog: "A vigorous growing and productive asparagus bred to resist the disease known as Asparagus Rust". Mary is a selection from Martha and is earlier and more robust. Stalks are slightly oval and of fine quality. 25 seeds. Learn More

  6. Stowell's Evergreen Corn

    STOWELLS EVERGREEN CORN (heirloom)

    HEIRLOOM 1848 There is an interesting story about this variety in the Seed Savers Exchange catalog. Nathaniel Stowell worked for decades developing this variety. He sold 2 ears to a friend for 4 dollars and the friend agreed that it was just for private use. The "friend" sold the seed for $20,000 and it was introduced to the seed trade. DM Ferry had this to say in 1930, "The standard main crop variety - it is hardy and productive, very tender and sugary - the ears about 7 to 8 inches long, 14 -20 rowed, with very white grain. The stalks are about 7-1/2 feet high". 75 seeds. Learn More
