This is a new variety in our pipeline in the 4 to 5 sieve range. Testing is still being done on disease and yield data. Come to our PLS trials to see the variety.
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.
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 really helps to boost yields. 196’s strong field tolerance to downy mildew ensures good pod-fill of quality berries as well.
Max’s Gold is a top choice for the Pure Line team because of its exceptional savory flavor and beautiful golden yellow color that stays consistent whether it is in the season or fried for a rich flavorful meal. This hybrid is still being developed for further disease resistance and vigor.
Greenfield is a new 3 sieve medium green bean with pods up to 7 inches in length. Greenfield fits for customers looking for a longer mid-size sieve bean for their market. This variety is a great blanching type variety.
1879 XR (YW/ 79d) has great lodging tolerance and considerable ear size. This variety has Common Rust resistance (Rp-GI) and moderate resistance to NCLB. The eating quality of 1879 XR is great for the main season processing market.
Sassy was developed for small sieve size, whole bean market by Pure Line Seeds. This outstanding whole bean competes for the leading spot every year with its high quality, early vigor, outstanding yields and great recovery.
This mid-season afila was developed by Pure Line Seeds. With its incomparable yields, superior color intensity and uniformity, Serge has taken one of the top spots in the industry. Serge has an excellent disease package and is especially well suited for climates similar to the Pacific Northwest in the U.S., Canada and Europe.
Spring has been the benchmark early variety in the industry for many years. It matures in 55 days with a large berry size.
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!
