  1. Green Globe Improved

    GREEN GLOBE IMPROVED ARTICHOKE

    HEIRLOOM 1863 For a century and a half this artichoke has been the standard variety in the west. It produces an abundance of "chokes" over a number of years given the right environmental factors.

  2. Violetto Artichoke

    VIOLETTO ARTICHOKE (60 days)

    Beautiful purple heads of artichokes look like flowers on these plants. Fruit is more elongated than the green globe type. There is some variation in the seed and the Italian supplier recommends removing any weedy looking seedlings before setting out, in order to get the best crop. Start indoors in late winter for a mid-summer crop even in Maine. In Italy, which is Zones 8-10, the plants are started in spring and transplanted in autumn. 20 seeds Learn More

  3. Imperial Star in Basket

    IMPERIAL STAR ARTICHOKE

    This hybrid artichoke was bred to be grown as an annual even in our northern climate. To force artichokes as an annual, germinate at warm temperatures and keep them warm until they produce their second set of leaves. You then move them to a cool place (above freezing) until set out in May. This tricks them into thinking they have gone through a winter and they will produce like a 2 year old plant. The flavor of fresh artichokes is superior to anything you will find in the store. 12 seeds. Learn More

  4. 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

  7. Yard Long Bean

    YARD LONG BEAN (90 days heirloom)

    HEIRLOOM Also known as asparagus bean, the longest we got were close to two feet. Four foot vines are very heavy and need a strong support.

  8. Slenderette Bean

    SLENDERETTE BEAN

    Green Bush Bean. Huge yields of bright green, crisp, 5-inch beans cover the erect plants. The white seeded bean has a very fresh flavor.

  9. Bush Blue Lake Bean

    BUSH BLUE LAKE 274 BEAN (53 days)

    Green Bush Bean. This variety was introduced in 1962 and was considered quite a breakthrough as it combined the exceptional flavor of the renowned Blue Lake pole bean with a bush habit. Today, over 25% of bush green bean sales are this one variety. Why so popular? Flavor! Pods are six inches long and straight with small white seeds. Plants are 18 inches tall and yields are dependably heavy. 2 oz packet (approx. 150 seeds) Learn More

Pods can be as long as 10 inches and beans are very large, like an elongated penny. If planted early, harvest will begin in July and last until a frost. Can be planted close, 9 per square foot.

  12. State Half Runner Bean

    STATE HALF RUNNER BEAN (heirloom)

    Pole Bean. HEIRLOOM 1800s. To stake or not to stake - that is the question for State. By definition half-runner beans are halfway between bush and pole types. Vines grow to 3 feet and will climb but staking is not essential. Beans are relatively short - 4 inches but yields are heavy and last over a long period. Flavor is very beany and not to be missed. 2 oz packet (approx. 180 seeds) Learn More
