Peppers and Eggplant

705-2Diamond Eggplant

We grew out this eggplant as it is said to produce well in shorter season climates.  We were definitely impressed with it’s earliness to produce fruit.  It seemed we were averaging 2 fruit per plant per week for at least 4 weeks then slowing down but still harvesting well into the fall.  The fruit are an elongated shape usually 6-8 inches long.  We mostly cooked our eggplant on the BBQ or cooked into stir frys but diamond is claimed to have a very creamy texture so I imagine it would make a nice dip as well.  The flavor on the BBQ was extraordinary and gave me a new love for this vegetable.  We grew this seed out in our unheated greenhouse but feel it would fair well outside as well.                    30 Seeds per pack

 

 

 

king of the northKing of The North Sweet Pepper

We are very happy to be offering King of the north this year, a medium to large sized red bell pepper that can also be eaten as a green pepper.  They have a fairly thick walls and tasted especially good roasted in the oven.  We grew it out in 2017 saving seed from the most productive and healthiest looking plants.   We felt like it needed some work before we offered it for sale so we grew it again in 2018.  We were very happy with the results the second time around.  Grown outdoors we were getting yields of at least 6 peppers with some plants producing as many as 10 or 11.  These peppers produced more and ripened almost as quickly as most of our other varieties grown in a tunnel.  We will be growing this pepper for years to come for our market customers.   30 Seeds per pack
