Our Non-GMO vegetable seeds remain well-known within the processing and the fresh market sectors worldwide. This is not only due to our high standard of producing quality seed, but also because of our deep desire to deliver excellence.
F26 was originally disregarded by its former breeder, but we praise it for the impressive pods- which grow up to 11 inches and competes with our best tasting beans!
Roma ll is a mainstay flat bean at Pure Line Seeds because of its great disease package and distinct flavor. This bean is string-less and maintains it’s green color during processing and canning. A good choice for anyone looking for a dependable and high-yielding flat bean.
Grenada is a true 2 sieve size with pods that are 6.5 inches or longer. The seed development is slow and has a long shelf life. Great variety for customers looking for long thin podded green beans with a great disease package. A highlight in the disease package is a high tolerance to bacterial brown spot. Grenada is suited for both fresh pack and fresh market growers.
1980 XR (YW/ 80d) has impressive ear length and good tip fill which contribute to stellar yields. 1980 XR has good eating quality for the fuller season processing segment which leads to a higher quality finished product.
An early maturing, yellow, blocky bell pepper for indoor and outdoor production. The plants are vigorous with short internodes and have a good tolerance to wet rainy conditions. The fruit is thick walled, 6-8mm, and turn from green to a bright yellow, with an ability to stay on the plant without wilting or creasing until turning from dark yellow to orange. High yield on healthy plants.
1972 XR (YW/ 72d) is an early yellow hybrid with improved plant habit and yield compared to other early processing varieties in the market. Good sweetness and kernel recovery make 1972 XR a perfect choice for the early segment.
PLS 2088 has strong yields of uniform and flavorful fruit. The rind is thin for easy slicing- not to mention that it is seedless, yet just as flavorful as a seeded watermelon.
This All-America Selections Winner shows strong vigor and fruit setting ability produces truly edible, bell pepper fruit with a hint of heat. Fruit is crispy and tasty with cute heart-shaped appearance and thick flesh. Compact growth habit can be grown in pots and especially suitable for small gardens.
Late Season Variety
Our 196 is a long podded, late season, dark blue vined variety. This variety has a very strong pod set consistently setting two pods per peduncle while occasionally throwing a third that helps to boost yields. 196’s strong field tolerance to downy mildew ensures good pod-fill of quality berries as well.
Second Early Variety
Topps is a Pure Line Seeds introduction, developed as a second early with excellent sieve size and superb quality. This pea has proven itself as one of the finest in markets across the world.
378A (WHT/ 78d) is a full season white hybrid with a very strong plant. 378A has great eating quality and excellent yield, which makes it an ideal choice for roadside and shipping markets.
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!
