chokes were ready for harvest in early June and continued to
produce for several weeks. A great first-year producer; cold hardy.

over-winter in temperate regions. Plant is a hardy bush that produces
many firm, meaty globes. Tavor produces 8-10 chokes per plant.

An all-male hybrid that is 7-10 days earlier than Jersey Knight. Well
adapted to temperate climates with very high yield potential and good
rust resistance. Spears have slightly more purpling than Jersey Knight.
Lewis has an upright plant habit that sets attractive, smooth
and straight pods. Consistent 5.5 inch dark green beans are set
midway on the plant with a sieve size of 3 to 4. Heavy yielding and
easy to pick, Lewis performs well into the fall and has an excellent
disease package, and great flavor. Concentrated harvest.

yield. In Eastern WA trials the spear count far outweighed that of
the standard varieties. Ravel produces straight, smooth and strong
spears that resist breaking. Produced a bountiful crop in our Western
Washington planting from early April, with a long harvest period.
Rapsody F1
Mid to late maturing all male hybrid that works well in all soils.
Strong spears have tight tips and are very uniform. Excellent yields.
The dark green foliage is healthy and remains green allowing for
extended assimilation of nutrients to ensure a healthy crop the

was the first variety to mature. Consistent sieve 4 sized beans and
very disease resistant.

and the beans are held high on the plant. Harvest is a breeze due
to concentrated sets held out from the stem in large clusters. This
variety prefers fertile soil.
Tambora 60 days
Tambora’s yield of consistently attractive yellow 5” pods is
impressive. Beans are concentrated in the upper part of the plant,
making for easy picking. This bean is a favorite and a must to try!

We added this European type pole bean because of its fantastic
flavor. The pods are large, light green, round, and stringless. The
beans are tender and smooth. Fast maturing: if you plant them at

early. Follow up with later maturing varieties. Each big pod
contains about 4-6 1” tasty beans. Sturdy upright plants are 3’ tall
and healthy. Pods are borne in the mid to lower part of the plant.
In our 2014 trials we noted a distinct lack of aphids on the Vroma
compared to other varieties.

Large-seeded, prolific, white cannellini bean has a beautiful sheen,
and even with a longer date to maturity, still works in western WA.

and weight than European cannellini. Meaty, large beans are
excellent for fresh shelling or dried. Resistant to lodging, and
tolerant to bean rust. Bred by Washington State University.

upright and glossy foliage is short for easy packaging. Allow 150
days for bunching or 200 days for medium bulb.
Celeriac, President
Celeriac, Prinz
Overwintering cauliflower traditionally can be harvested from late
January to mid May in the Pacific Northwest. Large framed plants
can yield heavy, beautiful heads when storage crops are starting
to wane. Very weather dependent, and we have seen results
differ every year. It is recommended to seed from June to late July
for transplant July to August, depending on your conditions and
desired harvest window.
Mumbles F1
The best field holding variety in our trials, which is an important
trait for the May slot when the weather is quickly changing and
can cause quick bolting. The plants are tall with lots of upright,
protective leaves. The inner wrap keeps the head free from sun
exposure, even when fully mature. The heads are large and very
uniform, and hold well. A medium high, smooth dome on a dense
head, along with very little segmenting, and no ricing, results in a
nice quality head.
Alderney F1
Matures about 1 week after Mumbles, we suggest you plant both
for a longer harvest window. Medium sized heads are held high off
the ground on tall, upright plants that do not sprawl. Nice tight wrap
over a very tall dome on a dense head. The quality is excellent with
a smooth dome, attractive curds and no segmenting.

Multileaf MT 35-45 days cut leaf, 50 days mini full heads
Innovative leaf lettuce that separates into a multitude of individual
same size baby leaves with one cut! Traditional lettuces have larger,
broader leaves on the outside and smaller leaves in the center of
the head. Multileaf lettuces have a high number of uniformly shaped
and sized leaves through the whole head. The flavor, texture and
crunch will change your customer’s outlook on salad mix.
You can use Multileaf lettuces in two different ways:
Mini full heads: cut low so that the leaves stay attached to the
core, market as a mini head, individually or in a mixed case.
Customers and chefs will appreciate the easy processing with low
waste and high quality. Plant heads 6-8” in row.
Loose leaves: cut a few inches above the ground in field- either
by hand or mechanically- to create an improved baby leaf lettuce
product. Vary height of cut to desired leaf size. Great texture and
durability will give you excellent volume and bag filling. Improved
shelf life due to the fact that they are mature leaves and they have a
small cut surface which also addresses health and safety concerns.
Plant multiple varieties in one bed for a diversified salad mix. We
suggest a high density planting of 3” in row for high yields.
We carry the following:

Salad Mixes (All ingredients are mosaic tested)
Gourmet Salad Mix
Our mix contains different varieties of butterhead, green and red
leaf, romaine, and other unique lettuce types. The wide range
of colors and textures combine to form an outstanding product
for the restaurant trade and specialty markets. The organic and
conventional versions will vary slightly due to seed availability.
Please note: Red varieties mature slower than their green
counterparts; second cuts may have a different mix as slower
varieties grow quickly after initial cut.
Mild & Wild Brassica Mix
A wide diversity of shapes and colors, with nothing too spicy. Quick
growing - a good mix for the spring, though the milder flavors hold
through the summer as well. A great combination of lacy, frilly
leaves and juicy, crunchy texture. The winner in our winter trials;
hardy and brightly colored.
Rouge Remix Lettuce Mix
This mix glows! An exciting eye-catching mix of all the different
red colors and shapes, with just enough bicolor leaves with tints
of green to set it off. Beautiful as is, or plant in the same bed as
our Gourmet Salad Mix, and then harvest together to push lettuce
diversity and color to a new height.
Super Frilly Lettuce Mix
Acting on the principle that dry lettuce will have a longer shelf
life, we have combined varieties with stiff frilly structure and
good crunch. Water will run more readily off these leaves post
harvest, and their lofty structure will fill a bag faster. A bright color
combination with a diversity of textures and flavors. Developed with
the growers’ needs in mind as well as customer satisfaction.

This sugar loaf radicchio was the earliest of our mid-summer Skagit
Valley trial; 55 days from transplant. Consistent in shape, color

and free of tip burn. This large sugar loaf has reduced bitterness
compared to most red radicchio varieties and makes a great addition
to salads but can easily shine on its own in any culinary preparation!

Burgundy, Cerise, Cream, Mauve and Peach! This new sweet pea was dynamic in our trials. Customers who drove up remarked on
their looks and fragrant smell. It’s hard not to get excited about these if you are a sweet pea lover or cut flower grower. The more
we cut, the more they grew; give them lots of head room and they will keep growing and producing. They have unbelievable stem length,
do well outdoors as well as in high tunnels for commercial growers. Worth every penny; you will wish you had more seed.
