• 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
  • Alpine Poblano

    After years of breeding we finally have a Pablano that produces well in our cold climate. We trialed heirlooms and hybrids from all over and never found a seed that produced. In 2013 we collected as much diversity as possible letting them flower together. Only a few plants made it to seed with a few specimens that stood out. Since that year we have continued selection and now have a Pabland we are proud of. This pepper rivals the productive capacity of all of our sweet pepper varieties, producing blocky uniform peppers that you can market by the unit. Our customers go crazy when we have these and I am sure yours will too. A real gem of our breeding program!
  • 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!
  • Honey Boat Delicata

    The sweetest and most dependable delicata squash we have trialed. Strong plants produce beautiful copper and green striped fruit. The superior sweetness is retained in storage making for delicious meals throughout the winter. Bred by Dr. James Baggett at Oregon State University.
  • 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!
  • Aji de Colorado Alpino

  • Italian Cherry Pepper

    Round shaped hot pepper with delicious mild spice. A classic in Italian cooking and for pickling! Makes a great pizza topping or added to any dish for a dash of spice without overwhelming heat. These 1 - 1.5 inch peppers bare abundant crops on strong plants. A great hot pepper for markets!
  • A true 'Mountain Miracle'!  This XL 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!
  • 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.
  • Diversified Fava Grex

    An incredible interbreeding collection of fava beans adapted to cold nights and short seasons.  These plants withstand frost and over winter down to temps in the single digits in our unheated tunnels. We plant as soon as we can work the soil in early march for outdoor production in our climate. A great companion plant for many other vegetables providing excess nitrogen to share with the community. The plants develop huge rhizobium bacterial nodules that can grow to the size of nickels. Big thanks to Ianto Evans and others for their work in collecting and sharing this fava bean diversity with the world! Many opportunities to select and develop new varieties from this mix!
  • 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
