Russian Pickling Cucumber

This early-maturing, smooth-green pickling cucumber has a sweet flavor and good crunch. Shared with Seed Savers Exchange by Daniel L. Flyger—who received it from his neighbor Viola Neubarth—this variety was reportedly brought to Hutchinson County, South Dakota, by the Schwartzmeer Deutsch (Black Sea Germans) in the 1870s.

Bouquet Dill

This widely grown dill variety is a prolific producer of edible flowers, leaves, and seeds, all of which can be used for flavoring everything from pickles and salads to sauces and condiments. Early-maturing plants have dark-green leaves, 6" flowering umbels, and an intoxicating scent.

Detroit Dark Red Beet

Great for canning and fresh eating, this variety is a good keeper, producing round, blood-red, 3"-diameter roots. This historic variety was introduced in 1892 by D.M. Ferry & Company. Original selections were made from the Early Blood Turnip beet by Mr. Reeves of Port Hope, Ontario, Canada.

Burpee's Stringless Green Pod Bean

Introduced in 1894 by W. Atlee Burpee who obtained its stock seed from N. B. Keeney & Son of Genesee County, NY. Burpee proclaimed it the only totally stringless green podded bean. Produces pods that are 5" long.

Red Cored Chantenay Carrot

This popular variety has sweet orange flesh, wide shoulders, thick, edible roots, and a red-orange core that gives the variety its name. Easy to grow—prepare and enrich the soil with nutrients, and a prolific harvest will result. The 6" roots are great for soups, canning, or fresh eating. Introduced by C.C. Morse & Company in 1929.

Jalapeno (Traveler Strain) Pepper

From Seed Savers Exchange member Larry Pierce of Cabool, Missouri. Named Traveler because Larry carried this seed with him when he moved to Oklahoma, Wyoming, and then Missouri. Sturdy plants covered in cylindrical fruits that average 3" long. Fruits ripen from green to bright red.
