An ‘All America Selections Award’ winner: pole bean Seychelles! This beautiful, dark green and round podded, string-less pole bean produces six equally perfect quality pods in a loose hanging truss. Seychelles produces a fresh-green firm gel around the very small, slowly developing seeds. It is resistant to Anthracnose and BCMV and is suitable for greenhouse production and can also be cultivated outdoors under cool conditions.
The long pointed pods of PLS 560 fill to the tip with 10-12 dark green berries of excellent flavor. These nice, light green pods really stand out against the dark blue-green foliage. A strong-stemmed variety – it holds upright throughout the season, making harvest quick and very rewarding.
Late Season Variety
PLS 179 is a Pure Line Seeds introduction developed as a late-season afila. This pea boasts a very desirable sieve size and extraordinary quality. Fresh Market growers have given rave reviews on yields. It also performs well for pea shoots.
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.
Coronet is a highly nutritious cowpea, fresh or dried. This compact, purple podded, 24″ plant is an improved Pinkeye Purple Hull type cowpea.
Named after the sabre sword for its uncanny resemblance, Sabre’s introduction has been a favorite of many fresh market growers worldwide.
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.
Second Early Variety
Style is another Pure Line Seeds developed second early afila. Style stands upright on its own very well due to the semi-leafless afila type and the short vine height. The berries are dark green and very uniform. Yields have proven themselves year after year to make this a very solid performer worldwide.
Second Early Variety
M14 is a strong stemmed normal vine that will stay standing through green pea harvest. This variety also makes for a picturesque field with so many bright green pods hanging on that classic Dick Lowe style dark blue vine.
This exciting new broccoli hybrid parades itself with its showy medium to large, blue-green leaves and deep-purple sprouts. The mildly sweet flavor is a result of its cross between a broccoli and cauliflower. Jacaranda is an early maturing variety that produces large round heads with uniform maturity and a long shelf life.
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.
PLS 9542 has a beautiful pure white head and blue-green leaves. Its head is well protected from over-exposure to the sun by its large inner wrapper. This hybrid also has a nice plant habitat for greater space efficiency.
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!
