BASIL


Greek Columnar Basil

Annual
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.

HEIRLOOM SLICER


Arkansas Traveler

Pink Tomato Det.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.

HYBRID SLICER


Momotaro

Pink Tomato Ind.78 days

Momotaro means “Peach Boy” in Japanese and it’s a wonderful folk tale about a boy that is “born” from a peach and who ends up a hero. This pink (almost red) tomato will be the hero of your garden! The tennis ball sized fruits have a well-balance, intensely rich and sweet, slightly acidic flavor. Vigorous plants. If you want a hybrid plant with great disease resistance and amazing productivity, but the flavor and look of an heirloom, this is the tomato for you.
