+/- 25 Seeds
Start by soaking the seeds for 24 hours or scarifying them. Seed 5-6 weeks before last frost, ideally in peat pots so as to disturb the roots as little as possible when transplant- ing. Be patient as seeds can take weeks to germinate. Transplant after the risk of frost, when plants have four true leaves. Alternatively, seeds can be direct sown in October or November.

We're trialing and breeding new varieties!
This is the most challenging and thrilling part of our work.
The trialing allows us to test varieties of a same species side by side and determine which one(s) taste and perform the best.
Breeding and variety maintenance means selecting for traits that are desirable such as flavor, texture, disease resitance, earliness and hardiness, just to mention a few.
