What's New in Herbs and Veggies for 2019


Blue Curled Vates Kale: a compact curly green kale, grows 12-16 in. tall and has a mild flavor. Pictured to the left.

Red Traviso Radicchio: an Italian heirloom radicchio with long loose heads instead of the usual cabbage shape; greenish red leaves in early summer, turns deep red with white ribs as weather cools.

Red Rosie Romaine: a beautiful romaine with narrow green leaves tipped red.

Fiesta Broccoli: recommended by a customer, a reliable broccoli with 5-7 in. heads and good tolerance to both hot and cold temperatures.


China Express Cabbage: back by popular demand, this slow bolting Napa type cabbage has uniform, barrel shaped heads, 8-9 in. tall and 4-5 lbs. Pictured to the left.

Mountain Spinach: we tried this perennial green last fall and were impressed, grows into a 6-9 foot vine with heart shaped leaves that taste like spinach.

Persian Middle East Cucumbers: we’ve had many requests for these petite, 5-7 in. cucumbers with thin skins and few seeds (popular at the grocery) and are looking forward to trying them out in our gardens.

Green Tiger Squash: a beautiful light green/dark green striped zucchini carried on a compact plant.


Honeynut Squash: a mini butternut squash, 5 in. long and 1-1.5 lbs., can be trellised, perfect for a single serving; would make a cute combo with Honey Bear, our mini acorn squash! Pictured to the left.

Honey Queen Raspberry: cold hardy, everbearing yellow raspberry, very sweet, and one of the few that will do well with some shade.

Apache Thornless Blackberry: returning after a few years’ absence, an erect blackberry, 4-5 ft. tall, with very sweet, glossy fruit.


Sweetheart Blueberry: new last year, but somehow went unnoticed, a cross between southern and northern varieties that has the unusual ability to produce 2 crops of flavorful and juicy berries, one in May and a smaller one in August. Pictured to the left.

Berried Treasure Box Huckleberry: an Appalachian member of the huckleberry family, low growing, evergreen, and spreads by rhizomes, till it reaches 8-12 in. tall by 3-8 ft. wide; bears dark blue berries. Unfortunately, we are all SOLD OUT of this new berry!

Royalty Purple Raspberry: available again, this amazing summer bearing raspberry can be eaten red, or let it ripen to purple and it’s even sweeter.


Cabernet Franc Wine Grape: blue-black grape used to make blended wine, full-bodied red wine, or a dry rose.

Pinot Gris Wine Grape: white grape whose round fruit varies in color - pink, copper/gray and brown/pink, makes a light bodied, floral wine, that may be deep yellow to copper, depending on the grape color.

Wee One Lavender: very compact, 8-10 in. tall x 12-16 in. wide, with lavender blue flowers and bright green foliage – looks like a little mound of blue! Pictured to the left.
