Lemon Cucumber: This unusual, eye-catching lemon-sized cucumber has excellent flavor and is a great slicer or pickler. It is scrumptious eaten with the skin and all just like you would an apple.

Employee spotlight: It takes a lot of time to find seed for 600 varieties! But Alex uses his connections from his market grower days to find us the best seed available. Then it gets hauled in in huge seed bags, where we send a sample off for germination testing. When he’s not in the seed bins, Alex plays the guitar and loves a good Bill Murray flick.

#Pepper growing tip: Temperature is crucial for starting peppers. Pepper seeds germinate much faster if the soil/media is kept at 70°–90°F. At cooler temperatures, they can either fail to sprout, or sprouting may take a month.
