  1. 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

  3. 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

  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
