Ask farmer Zaid Kurdieh of @norwichmeadowsfarm to describe the cucumbers of his youth, and he’ll tell you stories of long-forgotten varieties that filled a room with their fragrance. Breeder Michael Mazourek took up the challenge of rediscovering them, marrying heirloom flavors with modern disease resistance in the field. The result? The 7082 cucumber, a stubbled green slicer that’s memorably delicious. #row7seeds

“I’m not here to defend that vegetables need to be expensive; I’m here to defend the high-end restaurant as a laboratory for ideas and as an atelier, which is what it always has been,” said @chefdanbarber. “Luckily in these last few years that atelier has changed from concentrating on what we can do with lobster to what we can do with beet. I see the vegetable taking as much prominence as caviar and foie gras did 20 years ago.” [link in profile]

An icon of physical science, and the inspiration for the name “Row 7.” When scientists conceived the modern periodic table, they left blank spaces in the seventh row—placeholders for elements yet to be discovered. Here’s to many more discoveries in the rows, on the line and at the table. #row7seeds

A Habanada History Lesson — Part 4: . A few generations into his heatless habanero experiments, Michael Mazourek @mazlabseeds realized he was losing some of the fruity habanero fragrance he loved… . Crossing his breeding lines back to a true habanero helped to boost their flavor — but also brought back their fire. . The good news? Now he had this DNA test to identify the peppers without spice at the seedling stage — data taken from analysis of a seedling leaf. Michael only transplanted the seedlings that would grow up to make non-spicy peppers, saving tons of time, space and labor — and of course, sparing his taste buds. #habanadaweek #habanada #row7seeds
