Tidy little lettuces called "Salanova". Reds and greens. 2-4 heads to fill a gallon bag. Salanova lettuces are "made" for the mixed salad greens market. A quick snip at the base of the plant and it falls apart into perfect bite sized pieces!

Dark Red Norlands: Pretty red skin, pure white interior. A real delight. Boil and serve either hot with butter or cold in a salad Grown naturally.

Rose Finn Apple Fingerling -- new potatoes: Rose-blushed beige skin with deep yellow flesh. A fine fingerling with "exquisite flavor and cooking qualities" per the Maine Potato Lady. New potatoes with delicate skin so use now boiled and served hot with butter or cold in potato salad. Also a good baker; quick since small fingerling. Grown Naturally. Fun and funky shapes!
Rat-Tail Radishes ...seed pods
Menu Group: Food
Section: Vegetables
Category: Radishes

Vendor: Whitehill Farm

Actually the seed pod and not the root. Snip into salads. Wicked spicy! Rat-Tail Radishes have been selected for years to produce big rangy plants all covered with blossoms. Each blossom creates a seed pod, which when picked young, tastes JUST like a really spicy radish, and gives that nice "bite" in a salad! Since I don't like radish roots these are just the ticket.

Colorful mix of cherry tomatoes: Mix of Yellow Mini, Golden Sweet, Sakura a very nice red cherry, and Sun Peach. All naturally grown in our greenhouse.

Heirloom Mix: Martha Washington medium sized, German Johnson large pink, and Rose de Berne another pink tomato, smaller and one of our favorites; Ruby Gold and Striped German both large, yellow with streaks of red = very good. Cherokee Purple with its dark color and rich flavor. Also Valencia, a lovely deep orange and very tasty tomato. And finally Green Zebra with it's unique looks and flavor. All naturally grown in our green houses.

Large Red Cherry Tomatoes - Mt. Magic

Sun Peach Cherry Tomatoes: Better than Sun Gold? How could that be! Yes, as sweet with a slightly different tomato sweetness, and much less prone to splitting. Related to Sun Gold

Yellow Cherry Tomatoes - mix: More like candy than a tomato. A mix of Esterina, a round sweet light yellow cherry, and Nova, a darker yellow/orange grape cherry tomato.
