Perennial. Start indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost. Stratifying by alternating cool and cold temperatures (fridge and freezer in alternance for one week) can improve germination, but is not strictly necessary. If seeded before mid-March, the plant should flower in the first year. Seeds can also be direct seeded in the early spring or late fall.

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.
