BASIL


Greek Columnar Basil

A customer told me about this upright growing basil that almost never blossoms…which means you don’t have to keep cutting off blossoms to keep the plant producing leaves for all your pesto needs! Upright habit perfect for containers or borders. Grows 24-36 inches tall. Bring indoors in winter. Annual outside.

Prospera Italian Basil

This new basil is very similar to Aroma with it's classic Genovese appearance and flavor. The leaves are large and perfect for making pesto! In addition to being resistant to fusarium wilt, this new variety of basil has strong resistance to downy mildew so it will stay healthy until cold temperatures set in. Larger plants than Everleaf or Obsession, but still good for larger containers.

HEIRLOOM SLICER


Arkansas Traveler

Pink Tomato Ind.90 days

Five years ago I met a lady from New Orleans who said the best tomatoes in the world are Arkansas Traveler from her local farmer’s market. Every year I run out of these plants so fast that I guess she’s not the only one who likes them! These heirlooms are medium sized, pink-red, and very tolerant to heat. They are crack and disease resistant as well, but best of all they have an excellent well balanced flavor.
