2018 All-American Selections announced
• Sweet American Dream. This bicolour sweet corn has large ears with super sweet kernels. It can be eaten fresh, roasted, grilled, canned or frozen.
• Asian Delight. A Chinese pak choi cabbage with yields twice or more than other varieties. Much later to bolt, its small to mid-sized heads have a tasty, tender white rib contrasting nicely to the dark green leaves.
• Red Ember. This early-maturing cayenne is good choice for cooler climates and shorter growing seasons. It produces many bright red, thick-walled fruits with rounded ends, about 4 inches long and an inch wide. It’s described as spicy, but tastier than traditional cayenne.
• Roulette. This bright red habanero pepper winner has a tasty citrusy habanero flavour, but no heat. A plant will produce about 10 fruits at a time, up to 100 a season — acorn-shaped, 3 inches long and a bit over an inch wide.
• Mexican Sunrise. It’s a Hungarian pepper that performed best in the Southeast and Southwest, Perry says. Varied-color fruits are conical to 6 or so inches long.
• Chef’s Choice Red. What makes this beefsteak tomato special is its firm flesh, good balance of acidity to sweetness and many fruits on strong plants
• Red Racer. This cocktail-type tomato has resistance to several common diseases. Fruits mature in clusters about a week earlier than similar varieties, are uniform sized and are slightly larger than cherry tomatoes.
• Valentine. It’s a very sweet, deep red grape tomato that produces fruit about 55 days from transplanting, and can last quite well on the vine without cracking or losing flavour.
According to an article by americanagriculturist.com, these seeds will have to be bought from catalogues. Find more details at all-americaselections.org.
