Accelerate is a Pure Line Seeds introduction in cooperation with the University of Wisconsin. Accelerate is a large sieve bean selected for its yield and disease package. Accelerate is known for its large root mass which helps with production. Taking approximately 53-54 days to mature, it is an excellent choice for early season as well as full season produce. Does very well in cool climates.
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.
Annihilator produces tender, 6-inch pods that are set high on the plant for ease of picking and visibility. This bean has a good disease package and performs well in below average soils such as soils low in nitrogen levels.
PLS 134 is a Pure Line mid-season variety at 69 days and has a strong disease package and nice dark green plant and pods.
This melon is a top pick from the Pure Line team. With a brix of 14% – 18%, this melon is as sweet and flavorful as you will find. Papayadew’s rind is not only smooth and thin – making it great for slicing – but it turns from mild green to a creamy yellow as the fruit matures, making it easy to tell when it is ripe.
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.
Avalanche is a rare afila-type Snow Pea developed in our research department. The semi-leafless afila vine type has excellent stand-ability even after it sets loads of double 5.25” (13.5 cm) pods. Exceptional yields with a beautiful dark color make Avalanche a wonderful market competitor.
105519 is a new Bakker Brothers variety that is very dark green bean with an early maturity at 56 days. Sets pods that are majority 4 and 5 sieve size with pod length up to 7 inches. This variety is being selected for the fresh market growers.
First Early Variety
Strike was developed in the Pure Line Seeds research department. This is a first early English pea that has a great disease package – Pythium Root Rot tolerance and resistance to Fusarium Wilt race 1.
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!
