Perennial. Ideally, start seeds in flats in the early spring. Transplant to pots or trays after the plant develops true leaves and in the garden in the late spring to mid summer (6 weeks or so after seeding). Space plants 12”-18” apart. Seeds can also be direct-sown in the garden in early to mid summer, but they may only flower in their second year when direct-sown.

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.
