• Alpine Poblano

    A real breakthrough after years of breeding work by Casey and team at Wild Mountain Seeds in Zone 3 Carbondale, CO.  We have available for you an F6 Population developed to produce large uniform poblanos in cold climates and impressive yields in warmer zones. In 2013 the farm collected as many poblano strains as they could find and flowered them together. Only a few plants of that population made it to seed, having only a few specimens that stood out. Since that year, the farm has continued selection to improve size, uniformity and yield as this permiscuosly pollinated hybrid swarm  has been shaped into the "perfect shaped poblano population" (thinking of dishes like chile rellenos as selection criteria).This strain has rivaled the productive capacity of our sweet pepper varieties in past seasons, producing large sized uniform poblanos that you can market by the unit. The customers at our farm stand go crazy over these and I am sure yours will too. A huge thanks to the ancestral farmers whom domesticated and refined such an incredible culinary treat! A real gem of the breeding work at Wild Mountain Seeds!
  • Our Latest Effort to create a better Open Pollinated  Greenhouse Cucumber Breeding Project In Japanese, fushi means node and nari means setting fruit. Natsu Fushinari is a high yielder due to setting fruit at every node.We picked up these seeds from Baker Creek and they have quickly become our favorite greenhouse cucumber.  We then crossed them with some other of our favorite varieties with the goal to improve powdery mildew resistance, vigor and a prolonged high yielding production window. Producing from early June until Mid October on our farm. A bit later to produce than f1 Corinto with similar yields and better flavor. We plant about 70% of our greenhouse cukes to this hybrid swarm this season and they didn't disappoint.  This is highly selected "stock seed" grade seed.  Limited Supply. (note, there may be a few crosses with other popular F1 Cucumbers that we also grow) Beautiful color,  good uniformity,  incredible flavor and crunch.  Chef's and market customers enjoy the flavor of this variety over all others we have grown . Limited supply
  • Sunfired Flare

    Dark anthocyanin splashes laid over brick and maroon striped fruit. A show stopper variety and favorite of our mentor Jerome Osentowski of the Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute. Sunfired Flare produces copious amounts of fruit on strong plants that show great disease resistance. The plants grow great in cold soil temps and fruit late until the season. A great variety to draw attention to your farmers market stand!
  • Honey Boat Delicata

  • Mini Red Heirloom

    New for 2019! This amazing variety produces incredible amounts of mine red heirlooms on very strong vigorous plants. A crowd winner as thee  cute size is an easy choice for customers, even those not sure about buying a larger heirloom. Flavor is amazing and plants are very easy to maintain due to the small size of the fruit. A very high producer with good immunologic response (disease resistance) ensuring a long production window. This is a product of our ongoing frost trial survivor breeding of which is creating amazing vigor due to their abilities to grow vigorously in early spring cold soils. There is a bit of variability as this is an F1 swarm that we have been stabilizing. You will love this variety and so will your customers. Enjoy!
  • Resilient Shishito

    An open pollinated strain of the ever popular Shishito Pepper. The folks at Wild Mountain Seeds have been selecting for plants that produce early crops with larger sized fruit to help with filling their market pints faster making these crowd favorites more profitable. These shishitos can get “huge” and both market customers and restaurants enjoy the larger size when compared with many of the hybrid shishito strains. The flavor is great and we are excited to offer an open pollinated, refined option for this popular pepper.  
  • Vaquitas Grex

    "Diversity within a theme" is what this interbreeding population is all about.  Vigorous plants dry down and cook uniformly with great flavor. A real marvel to hold in your hand as you ponder the different ways to be a Vaquita (baby cow). We love growing and eating these beans. Plant two weeks before your last frost date.
  • Aji de Colorado Alpino

    Pound for Pound our best producing spicy pepper says Kirsten at Wild Mountain Seeds! An extremely productive capsicum baccatum pepper originating in South America.  After years of selection and breeding we have drastically increased cool soil temperature growth, earliness and plant stature.

  • Oh My Hybrid Swarm

    A refined medium to large black tomato with added vigor, crack resistance and amazing flavor! We have been hard at work over the last 6 years to breed a black tomato that's production rivals that of any tomato we grow. The blacks with their incredible flavor are always a hit at the farmers market but their lack in productivity has always been a set back.   This new black is making the production of these tasty heirlooms a very profitable endeavor. Our 2019 hybrid seed impressed beyond our wildest dreams being both early, incredibly productive, sustaining production into the  early winter. These tomatoes have shown great immunologic response (disease resistance) and are great choices for heirloom production in the greenhouse. We are currently committing 50% of our farm to the production of this crowd favorite tomato ( a dead ringer for Black Krim or Cherokee purple but with increased yield) The price of these seeds reflects the quality of the plants of which have outperformed F1 hybrid Marnero in head to head tests on many farms.
  • A true 'Mountain Miracle'!  This tomato is the backbone of our heirloom production and preforms equally well inside and outside of the greenhouse. Early and productive are words that come to mind to describe these seeds. The flavor has enriched with selection over many years and has our customers coming to our stand and selecting these pink tomatoes even over the popular blacks (a tendency we love considering their productivity and disease resistance).  We are very proud of these seeds and hope that it becomes a backbone producer of your farm helping you differentiate yourself from your competition. Enjoy!
  • Medium to large yellow/red bicolor tomatoes with extreme yield and performance. Beautiful, crack resistant fruit that hold well off the vine.  These hybrids have heirloom quality flavor or better but with much better productivity. Wild Mountain Seeds in Carbondale, CO at 6400’ have been using selection pressures such as frost, drought and late blight to find superior heirloom plants with amazing hybrid vigor. Through this intense selection they have drastically increased early fruiting, crack resistance, immunologic response (disease resistance) and yield. We combined many popular varieties then selected for production, vigor and fruit quality.  The most vigor of any other bi-color variety available. We dedicate 30 to 40% of our planting to this grex. We have found that our older clients enjoy the milder yellow bi-color tomatoes due to their lower acidity and we wish to have plenty at our stands. The price of these seeds reflects the quality of the plants of which have outperformed other F1 hybrids such as Marnero, Margold and Marbonne at a more expensive price.
  • Nor’easter Pole Bean

    I grew up growing this superior flavored pole bean and it has been a staple on our farm for years. Long delicious pods have incredible flavor and resist getting tough. We have tried many different varieties and are yet to find anything that rivals the flavor of this long flat Roma style pole bean. Hand one to our customers and you can guarantee a sale. Great fresh or cooked.  A truly amazing heirloom!
  • Heirloom Survivors Grex

    In the late winter and early spring of 2018 we set out to step up our frost tolerance trials. We seeded nearly 1500 tomatoes of diverse parentage to a tray and treated it with continued temperatures in the 28-32 degree range. After losing many seedlings over these treatments we felt we needed to turn up the pressure to thin the herd to a manageable population size. The next night we left the tray on the porch at 6400’ feet in Colorado in early February. The lows dropped to 24 and we weren’t sure if we would see any survivors. To our surprise about 50 specimens survived and are the parents of this diverse grex. All survivors showed added amounts of fur, vigor, and were surprisingly quite diverse representing all colors that we grow. Many of the specimens where new varieties and many adapted the anthocyanin trait that we have Dr. Jim Myers of Oregon state to thank for introducing. The results are exciting and we are happy to offer a very limited amount of seed this season
  • Big Blossom Grex

    Extra large squash blossoms and lots of them! With added interest from chefs and market customers we set out to make a better maxima winter squash bred specifically for the production of these tasty treats. We focused the breeding on selecting plants that produce more male blossoms with increased size.  Chefs love the large size because they can put fewer on a plate lowering the plate cost and keeping the customer happy. We sell hundreds of these a week for up to a dollar each, making it one of the most profitable crops on the farm! We pick in the late morning when blossoms are dry but before bugs move in.
  • Lucid Gem of Colorado

    Our newest 2020 selection of this beautiful tomato originally bred by Brad Gates of Wild Boar Seeds in California. Our newest strain arose out of the 2018 frost trials and has gone through ongoing selection for fruit quality, yield, vigor and disease resistance.  This variety keeps incredibly well off and on the vine making a great tomato when a longer shelf life is needed. A beautiful tomato that draws people to our stand year in and out. We highly recommend adding this gem to your tomato quiver!
  • "Best of Buttercup"  a culinary selected grex of the various ways to be a buttercup maxima winter squash. The Goal of  our "Best of Buttercup" breeding is to create a small sized, buttercup shaped grex(latin for flock) of genetics with incredible flavor and superior vigor and yield. Imagine buttercups in all shades of colors with one thing in common.... AMAZING FLAVOR! With all of the genetic diversity in this hybrid swarm you can expect extreme growth and production that you rarely see in typical inbred heirlooms or commercial hybrid seed production. "Best of Buttercup" is a very special seed that we are offering and will only have a small amount available in 2020! Expect some variability as non-buttercup genetics still exist in the population. Enjoy!
