2013 All-America Selections Vegetable Winners
Add flavor and variety to this year’s vegetable garden with the 2013 All-America Selections (AAS) Winners.
AAS winners are tested in the U.S. and Canada and selected for their improved flavor, pest resistance and overall suitability to the home garden.
Melemon melon was selected for its earliness and superior taste. The judges compared it to a honeydew melon with a delicious tanginess. These productive vines produce uniform and personal-sized fruit.
Harvest Moon watermelon produces sweet crisp pink to red fleshed watermelons on shorter vines. The dark rinds have the yellow dots, like Moon and Stars watermelon, but are seedless, higher yielding and earlier ripening.
A bit more information: In addition to its flavor and long harvest, Jasper tomato is resistant to late and early blight and Fusarium races 1 and 2, wide spread diseases of tomato. Grow these vining plants staked or towered.
