  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. Plants are dark green, of medium height, and buds are an elongated oval with somewhat spiny scales. 25 seeds Learn More

  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

  5. Windsor Fava Bean

    WINDSOR FAVA BEAN (75 days)

    Good choice for the North because it can be planted in cool soil, the Fava produces an erect 2 to 3 foot stalk and bean pods form from white and black flowers along its length. 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. We use them like limas. 30-40 seeds. Learn More

  6. 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
    $1.75

  7. KING OF THE GARDEN POLE  LIMA BEAN

    KING OF THE GARDEN POLE LIMA BEAN

    HEIRLOOM 1883 Pole lima. Bred as an improvement for both earliness and size. The vigorous climber has 4-6 quite large, creamy limas per pod. Produces over a long period - until frost. The 1936 James Vicks catalog states, "this standard pole bean is a popular as ever today". Even then it was considered an old timer. 1 oz packet (approx. 25 seeds) Learn More
    $1.75

  8. Coco Noir Bean

    COCO NOIR BEAN (75 days)

    No, this one is not named after Le Bon Chien Du Chocolate - the company dog. Also known as Starazagorski. Well defined bushes are about 18" tall with the maturation of the beans beginning on about the 70th day after planting - relatively early for a shell bean. Pods are about 5" long presenting large beans in shades of blue. Tolerates heat well, nice flavor. 2 oz packet (approx. 115 seeds) Learn More
    $1.75

  9. Marfax Bean

    MARFAX BEAN (83 days)

    Grown in Maine by Tony Neves, Marfax has a rich history as a logging camp, bean hole type bean. Seeds are a brownish tan and do very well in the cool climates of the Northeast. Bean suppers still abound here in Maine and many of the old traditions seem to be making a comeback. Why not try a few pots of baked beans in the old enamel pot with molasses and bacon like my mother and perhaps yours did decades ago? 2 oz packet (approx. 145 seeds) Learn More
    $1.75

  10. Maxibel Bush Bean

    MAXIBEL BUSH BEAN (59 days)

    A full sized haricot vert, 7 inches long. The thin, elegant green pods are borne in a concentrated set for ease of picking. A high yielding variety with a good, rich bean flavor. Back by popular demand. 1 oz packet (approx. 100 seeds) Learn More
    $1.95

  11. Indy Gold Bean

    INDY GOLD BEAN (56 days) *SOLD OUT*

    Yellow Bush Bean. After a one year absence this popular wax bean is back in the catalog. The bright gold beans are held high on the plants for ease of picking. Yields are abundant to put it mildly. Pinetree cooks recommend that you try this variety parboiled and then fried with oil and garlic. 2 oz packet (approx. 180 seeds) Learn More
