This F1 hybrid is an early Nantes type carrot. The vigorous plant produces a long (20-24 cm) smooth, slender and cylindrical carrot with a diameter of 4-4,5 cm. The shoulders are round, the carrot is slightly tapering and the leaf attachments are not sunken. Barracuda F1 is known for its excellent internal color. The color is dark orange with a small to medium size core. It will not develop green shoulders or a green core at normal to difficult growing conditions. It is not sensitive to conditions that increase longitudinal cracking of the roots. The leaf attachment is medium to small and strong. The leaves grow upright and are not too dense, this helps airflow and limited susceptibility to fungal attack. Barracuda F1 will produce a high yield and is very suitable for processing and fresh market.
King Tut is an old variety at PLS. As legend goes this pea came from King Tut’s tomb. But whether this is true or not is quite debatable. Today this pretty little pea finds its place in our program as stock for our breeders to pull from and improve other varieties. We are also building stock of this variety as a greater interest for purple vegetables increase. Who knows, maybe you will see King Tut in your garden!
Attracting Pollinators to our Pure Line Showcase Trials is essential. Pollinators, such as bees, butterflies, and other healthy insects or birds help to ensure our cucurbits, melons, and pumpkins pollinate correctly. These Zinnia’s are a pollinators dream!
Trellising pole beans is far easier than it appears. At our showcase trials, we simply drove two 1×1 poles into the ground. Drilled another 1×1 pole on top connecting the two and drilled screws all around the frame to run string back and forth for the beans to grow on. Enjoy trellising!
