Litchi Tomato aka Morelle de Balbis (Solanum sisymbriifolium) litchi
This was an interesting fruit to grow. The plants are very thorny like many weedy relatives of the tomato in the Solanum famiy. Unlike those, though these make tasty fruits. They do not taste like a tomato. They have a sweet flavor with a bit of tart and when really ripe they lose the tartness and have a plumy melonish taste sort of how kiwis are. The plants are easy to grow in the ground or in 5 gallon buckets as I did. In pots they grow to about 2 1/2′ tall and larger on the ground. The blossoms are large and have bluish cast over white blooms. The photo doesn’t show the coloration very well, but they are pretty. Cascading fruit develop from the blossoms. When ripe, they become bright red and the thorny casing around them gets a bit soft, but they are still difficult to extract. My dogs though figured out how to carefully remove the branches and turn them upside down to get at the fruit. Yes, they liked them very much. I found it was easiest to snip the fruiting branches and then bring them inside to carefully extract them. The fruit are seedy, but the seeds didn’t bother me. Of course they can be cooked and strained when making jams, etc. o read more about them at Eat The Weeds, Click Here.

An FYI about the MELON descriptions~They may seem a bit lacking in flavor descriptions and not as personal in general as the other items. That is because I (Remy) am allergic to them so I do not grow them or taste them. I pick out as best I can choices that I think you might be interested in growing.
.
.
Melon ‘Ananas melAna
This is a white fleshed heirloom muskmelon. It said to very sweet. The name Ananas means pineapple so I would think that is an indicator of good flavor.

Naranjilla (Solanum quitoense) Z11 Naranj
I’m not sure what possessed me to try and grow this plant that is native to South America, but I did, and I’ve got a story to tell, and I’m telling it! I received a few seeds from a gardener in 2008. When starting my tomatoes in 2009, I planted those seeds. Only one sprouted, and it was not very vigorous(either the seeds was old or stored improperly.) I was determined to keep it alive, and I did. I had it potted, and it never grew much, but it stayed alive. I had it in a quart pot and it seemed too small to re-pot so there it stayed. Come cold weather, I brought it in. It did well inside with little watering and it ever grew a bit! It developed little thorns along the leave spines.
Come spring, I brought it out and re-potted it. It started to grow! So I potted it up to a 5 gallon bucket and gave it some tomato fertilizer and it really took off. Naranjilla grows to about 5′ tall though in the pot, I would say it was more like 3′. The plant became very pretty but, very scary. The now huge leaves developed vicious looking thorns as you can see in the photo I took with Gary’s finger. Gary, at that point said, “You are not bringing that thing in this fall. I said, “If I have to I will.” I was not going to not get ripe fruit off of it after growing it for so long!! Gary of course shakes his head at me knowing I am a crazed gardener.
The plant bloomed, fruit developed in early fall, and as you’ve probably guessed already, I had to haul it inside. This was a very tricky task! I did finally get ripe fruit after all that work. I was victorious!
The round orange fruit are covered in hairs. Somehow the hairs can be removed.(If you know a trick, let me know.) The inner flesh, juice, and seeds has a nice fruity flavor. To me I though of orange.
Would I grow this again? Maybe not, but it was a fun adventure.
I have germination tested the seeds and got great germination after about a week. The seedlings are much more vigorous than the seedling that I started with so the length of time to get fruit would definitely be less than it took me. It is however a long season crop and would need to be hauled indoors to get fruit up north.
Update~ I had a couple customers write to me about the hairs. One said to just rub the fruits to get the hair off. I’m assuming with a cloth. I found a link that said “workers rub the fruit on dry grass.” Another customer said that they peel the fruit, and it is cooked in curry or used to flavor a dipping sauce in place of lime juice. 15 seeds for $1.75.

Okra ‘Clemson Spineless (Abelmoschus esculentus) okrCSp
This is an old standard variety that is much loved. Okra is a warm climate crop, and should not be planted until the soil has warmed. It is a very attractive vegetable to grow. Okra is in the hibiscus family grows 4-5′ tall and has large pale yellow blooms. It is nice enough for the flower border. AAS winner 1939. 25+ seeds for $1.25.

Okra ‘Cowhorn Select(Abelmoschus esculentus) okrCowS
This variety was sent to me by Darrel Jones of Select Plants. He wrote, “This Cowhorn okra is a selection I’ve worked on for several years that gets much taller than normal and produces very heavily.” I’m happy to be able to offer this one to you all! 25+ seeds for $1.25.

.
Okra ‘Dwarf Long Green Pod’ aka ‘Dwarf Green Long Pod’ (Abelmoschus esculentus) okrDLGP

Pak Choi, Baby with White Stems (Baby Bok Choy) (Brassica Rapa ssp chinensis group) pakChoi
This is one of my favorite veggies for adding to stir fry. sometimes you see the all medium green variety, but I find the white stems with darker green tops more appealing. Pak Choi must be grown in cooler weather, either start very early or plant for fall. It will bolt in hot weather. Besides not liking hot weather, this is very easy to grow. 100+ seeds for $1.50.




.
.
Pak Choi with White Stems, regular (Bok Choy) pakWSt
This is an OP cultivar of Pak Choi/Bok Choy. As described as above, but the regular sized version. It can of course be harvested young for baby greens, but left to its own devices it will grow to a quite large size. 100+ seeds for $1.25.



.
.
Parsnip ‘Harris Model’ (Pastinaca sativa) parsHM
Parnips are carrots sweet cousin. The roots are long and look like a white carrot. I don’t know that there’s much variation between parsnip varieties. I changed things up and got this variety for the year. I’ve read that parsnip germination is spotty at best so sow more than you need. Though I read about people who overwinter them and have seeding plants(parsnips are biennials.) They have them sprouting up every where. Reading this, I think that the seeds might do best with winter chilling. Winter sowing could be done, but they would need to be transplanted at a very tiny seedling stage. Or possibly a bed prepared in the fall and seeded very early the year. In any case, parsnip seed does not last long so only buy if you plant to grow in the near future. 200+ seeds for $1.50.

radishchinaroseRadish ‘China Rose radChR
I often see this one used for sprouts. The baby stems have that nice pink color to them, but they are very good for big radishes too. The full grown radishes are elongated and full like deep pink sausage links (silly but best description I could think of.) This is a winter type so best grown in the fall for full sized radishes.
150+ seeds for $1.25.




.
Radish ‘Easter Egg Mix’ radEE
This is a great inexpensive mix of white, red, and pink radishes. 150+ seeds for $1.

.
.
radishlongscarletRadish ‘Long Scarlet radLoS
This heirloom radish looks more like a red carrot than a radish. It has been around since the mid 1800’s as it is listed books from that period. The photo to the right is from Vilmorin’s The Vegetable Garden. In that book it says:
“Long Scarlet- Root extremely long and slender often 5 or 6 in in length and only about 3/5″ in diameter, the upper part long cone shaped narrowed towards the of the leaves skin smooth and a vinous red colour; flesh almost transparent and slightly tinged with pink or lilac. This Radish is most usually grown in the open air in well dug and well manured soil…The roots take about a month to become fully formed. The flesh is tender, crisp, and fresh, but has not the pungent flavour of (other) Radishes.”
I would definitely take the advice of the book and making sure the soil is well dug or grow them in potting mix in adequately sized containers for best success. 150+ seeds for $1.25.



.
.
Radish, Daikon ‘Minowase’ radMin
Daikon radishes are the big long white kind used for kim chee and other Asian dishes. They grow about 10″ long and a couple inches around. They need cool weather so plant in early spring or late summer. They also need loose soil to grow well. The soil here has too much clay, so I grow them in tall pots. Those new grow bags out on the market would be perfect for them too. 150 seeds for $1.25.
.
.
golden radishRadish ‘Golden Helios radGoH
Yes, this is a yellow skinned radish. It seems to be a northern European heirloom. In my copy of Field and Garden Vegetables of America from 1863, there are a couple Yellow Turnip varieties listed and this could be one of those or a descendent of one. 150 seeds for $1.75.


.
.
Radish ‘Purple Plum’ aka ‘Plum Purple’ radPuP

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARhubarb ‘Glaskins Perpetual‘ Z3 rhuGPe
This is a heirloom variety of rhubarb that is easy to start form seed. I started this variety by winter sowing from seed some time ago. The stalks vary from green to red and work well for whatever you might be cooking up. I make a yummy rhubarb custard pie that everyone loves. Starting from seed, you will of course need to give the plants time to settle in for a year or two, but it is well worth the wait as they are long lived perennials and buying plants can get pricey. Rhubarb is very winter hardy, and may not do well in areas that do not get a winter chill. Sorry my pic is not so great. 50 seeds for $1.75.
Sorry, now out of stock.
.
.
Rhubarb ‘Victoria rhuVic
This is another heirloom variety. It has red stalks with a touch of green. Seed grown types do vary in color more than the commercial ones you see at the store, but it does not affect flavor at all. Starting from seed, you will of course need to give the plants time to settle in for a year or two, but it is well worth the wait as they are long lived perennials and buying plants can get pricey. Rhubarb is very winter hardy, and may not do well in areas that do not get a winter chill. 50+ seeds for $1.75.

Sorghum ‘Black Amber’ (Sorghum bicolor) sorBAm
Sorgum is a corn relative, and the plants look very similar to corn growing tall with thick stalks and long leaves. This sorghum is a syrup type with very pretty dark shiny seeds. Making syrup is a fairly time consuming process and you need the right equipment. Basically, after harvest, the leaves are stripped leaving the tall stalks which are fed through a machine called a cane mill to squeeze the juice out of the canes. Then it is boiled down. Of course there’s a bit more to it than that. Much information can be found by Googling making sorghum syrup and there are many videos on YouTube. 75 seeds for $1.50.

.
.
Sorghum ‘White Popping’ sorWP
This corn relative seems like such a neat plant to grow. The “popcorn” was recently featured on the TV show ‘Bizarre Foods’ with Andrew Zimmern. He loved it. To see the video clip from his show on YouTube, CLICK HERE. We tried it here and loved it too. It tasted like popcorn, but not exactly if that makes any sense! They are small, but packed with flavor. This is a good grain for a gluten fee diet. The plants grow tall and are similar to corn. I know birds like seeds of colored broom corn so I assume they will like this too. Seed protection may be needed unless you want to feed and attract birds. 75 seed for $1.50.
.
.
Red Broom Corn Mix (Sorgum bicolor) RBroom
This mix is made up of many red varieties so the color pallet is very pleasing. The plants grow tall and are similar to corn. A row of them in the flower border or vegetable garden would be very pretty. Red Broom Corn can be used as a grain like other sorghums, but I think more people grow them for their ornamental use in the garden and in fall/winter decorations. Of course this may change now that more and more people are found to be gluten intolerant. Seed protection may be needed unless you want to feed and attract birds. 75 seed for $1.50.

Spinach ‘Bloomsdale Long Standing’

100+ seeds for $1.50.

.
.
Spinach, Caucasian (Hablitzia tamnoides) Z5 (maybe 4?) hablit
This a perennial vining spinach substitute. I have it growing up a pillar in my garden. It is a native of northern Europe and virtually unknown here in the US. It is a relative of Beets/Swiss Chard, and the flavor profile is similar. They may be eaten raw in salad or cooked.
Being it is so rare in the US, I do not know how far south it will grow. I’m going to assume it need to grow in areas with winter freezing as it needs cold to germinate. So this one does need cold stratification or wintersowing for successful seed germination. I’m also going to assume it will probably do best in shady in areas that get hot in the summer. It only gets up to about 90 for a few days here in summer, most days are in the 80 range. From what I’ve read, it is a forest type plant in its native habitat. I have it is in good soil, well mulched in full sun, and it does nicely there. Also, as with most perennial vines, you may have to wait a year or two before you get a decent harvest of leaves. Of course the nice thing is once you plant, you won’t have to again! 50 seeds for $2.50.
Sorry, now out of stock. My dogs ruined my planting going after critters. The area is now fenced off, but the damages was done.
.
.
Spinach, Malabar Red Stemmed (Basella rubra) spinRSM
I grew this this past season(2010) to test it out and was quite pleased with it. I grew it in a large planter and it sat there at first then it exploded with growth and long leafy vines overflowed the container and spilled onto the ground. So in the heat of late summer when you can’t grow regular spinach, this is the ticket. The flavor is just like spinach. The texture is often described as mucilaginous. The leaves are thick and if they were a bit thicker you could say reminiscent of a succulent. This bothers some people. It does not bother me at all. The nice thing about this plant is you can grow it as an ornamental so if you end up not liking it, no biggie. For seed savers, please note that this plant blooms and goes to seed during the short days of the year, so us up north can not save seed unless of course you have a greenhouse to haul it into. 50 seeds for $1.75


.

spinachnewzeaSpinach, New Zealand (Tetragonia) spinNewZ
Not a true spinach, this plant has been a warm weather spinach substitute since the 1770’s. The plants are spreading and have triangular shaped leaves. The large seeds can be slow to germinate. A soak in warm water for a few hours before planting is often recommended.(I have to remember to try winter sowing a few and see what happens.) 50 seeds for $1.50.

Swiss Chard ‘Fordhook Giant’ (Beta vulgaris) swiFG
This is the best white chard I’ve grown. It has been popular since 1934 and for good reason. It is a vigorous grower and makes very wide stems if you let them get large. The leaves are dark green and savoyed. I’ve found chard to be very easy to grow except the bunnies love it so protection from them is a must. It can be grown in pots. Photo courtesy of a generous customer. 75+ seeds for $1.00.

Swiss Chard ‘Flamingo Pink’ swiFPi

TOMATOES can be found on the Buy TOMATO Seed Page.

.
Tomatillo (Physalis philadelphica aka Physalis ixocarpa)Tillo
This tomato relative is known for making green salsa. From attractive yellow blossoms come fruit which grows in papery husks looking similar to a Japanese lantern plant. Once ripe the fruit fill the husk and split open the bottom. The fully ripe fruit has a sweetness to it that some might say is pineapple like, but my odd taste buds sense apple. The plants are vigorous and disease resistant. The plants need support like a tomato or the branches will spread out and cover a good patch of the garden. Much of the fruit ripens at the same time making it good for canning. Colder zones might be a tad too short to get ripe fruit unless the plants are given a good head start. I received a report from a zone 5 gardener who says they have no problems with the tomatillos ripening in time which is good news! 25+ seeds for $1.
