Cucumber: Marketmore. Slender, dark green fruits set the standard for slicing cucumbers. Amazing flavour!

Shintokiwa Cucumber:

An old Japanese variety, also known as “Tokyo Green”. A supremely sweet, bitter free 9” cuke with tender skin and few seeds. They do well on fences and trellises, saving space in the gardens. Vines are almost mildew proof and well adapted to hot, dry summers. Small fruit makes excellent pickles and set the standard for slicing cucumbers; buttery soft and sweet, never bitter.


Traditional Japanese variety. The gold standard in sushi bars. Good disease and pest resistance, abundant producer of long, slender, burpless fruit. Benefits from trellis growing.

Mouse Melon: Diminutive oval melons look like miniature watermelons and are surprisingly crunchy, with a refreshing tart taste that's great for pickles, stir fries and fresh salads! Very attractive ornamental vines are ideal for growing on a trellis. Mouse Melons (also known as Mexican Sour Gherkins) are virtually carefree, have good disease resistance and are extremely easy to grow. Very heavy yields. 60 DAYS.

Zucchini: Costata Romanesco. Nutty flavour and firm texture distinguish this Italian heirloom. Great in stir-fry, grilled on the barbeque or whatever way you want to prepare them! Costata's also produce an abundance of male flowers, which are amazing grilled or stuffed.

A very old heirloom pumpkin that is still one of the best for pies! It is a most abundant bearer, rarely fails in maturing its’ crops perfectly. The orange pumpkins are 6-8 inches in diameter and average 6 pounds. The flesh is thick and sweet and perfect for pumpkin pie.

Tip Top Melon: A very rare variety due to it's resistance to factory growing conditions. A very sweet orange fleshed melon, with just a hint a spice. If you've never had cantaloupe fresh from the garden, you've never really had cantaloupe! Puts supermarket varieties to shame. 

85-90 days.
