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.
A new addition to Pure Line’s trials is this sweet and colorful little Indeterminate tomato. 76198 has a later maturity but still performed well in our Wisconsin trials. Cherry type for cluster picking, 40-60 gr, red to brown color with green streaks, round shape.
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.
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.
Oregon Giant is a snow pea that was developed by Dr. James Baggett at the Oregon State University. Oregon Giant produces some of the largest snow pea pods in the industry.
Don’t be fooled by this smaller berried pea, yields will astound you. This variety has consistently been a top yielding variety across the country since its release. The ever increasing importance of 167’s strong field tolerance to downy mildew keeps this variety in high demand. Harvest early for even smaller berry.
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.
Recruit is also a Pure Line Seeds late season afila introduction. This pea has a great disease resistance package and yields heavily, making it very appealing. The pods produce intense colored berries with marvelous flavor.
This is a new 4 sieve bean that produces medium green pods on a very healthy plant with resistances to BCMV, Anthracnose, and Halo Blight. This variety has Shown great potential in both the fresh and processing market.
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!
