Querida comes with a great disease package including a strong tolerance to downy mildew. This standard vine sets a very consistent three pods per node even in high populations. This results in a tremendous yielding crop that is weed competitive.

A large plant with an excellent fruit cover. Super Habanero has a very uniform fruit and is extremely hot. It has a medium, pale green color, changing to red, with a medium to late season maturity that is resistant to CMV. Excellent in a variety of climates, including northern.
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.
Sugar Snap Variety
Sugar Daddy is a string-less podded pea variety that is self-supporting. Great mainstay 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.
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.
Pure Line Seeds is ecstatic to introduce PLS 566. Recent trials of PLS 566 have shown this pea’s capability to return tremendous yields. These long light green pods really stand out against the strong, dark blue-green afila vine. With two pods per node and 10-12 berries per pod. You’ll be very pleased with this sweet pea!
Antigua has been trialed at various locations in the United States and has shown good adaptability to many locations. Antigua sets pods up to 5.5 inches in length with a majority of the pods at 4 sieve size. Antigua has a very good disease package with resistance to BCMV, Anthracnose and Halo Blight. Antigua is a blanching type variety. This variety fits both the processing and fresh market segments.
Specialty Pea Variety
Parsley Pea a new variety from Pure Line Seeds that is used for the pea shoot, clipping and specialty markets.
Harvest the pea plant when it is roughly 2-3 inches tall by cutting the whole plant and adding it to salads, a side dish, or simply to snack on!
The tendrils are clipped at a young stage when they are still tender and have a sweet pea flavor.
Parsley Pea also produces pods and can be eaten like a normal shelling pea. The peas contain some of the sweetest and greatest pea flavor within our portfolio.
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!
