Here at Pure Line Seeds we recognize that our greatest strength lies within each individual that makes up our team. Within our team we are able to meet industry needs by providing friendly service, innovative solutions and excellent seed.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Named after the sabre sword for its uncanny resemblance, Sabre’s introduction has been a favorite of many fresh market growers worldwide.
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.
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 it is highly tolerant bacterial brown spot. Grenada is suited for both fresh pack and fresh market growers.
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.
Second Early Variety
Our new 304 is a highly competitive second early season pea. Pods set high and tight on the plant with two, three, and occasionally a fourth pod per peduncle making for fantastic architecture.
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.
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.
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!
