Southern Exposure Seed Exchange(Mineral, Virginia)
Bred for desert heat. The tall (24 in), heavy, light-green heads retain their sweetness even when other lettuces have gone bitter.
The tiny corn seen in Asian restaurants! 3-5 stalks per plant, 8-12 ears per stalk. 2-3 in. long ears.
Extra-early. Crisp, flavorful 3 in. snap peas. Compact 2 ft. vines don't require trellising. Also good for fall crop.
Heirloom. Creasy greens are an old favorite. As easy to grow as spinach indoors or out.
6-8 oz. red fruits, meaty flesh, small cores, few blemishes. Excellent, mildly sweet flavor. Good disease resistance.
Widely adapted, productive, and heat tolerant. Especially suited to growing in clay soil, and the strong tops aid harvesting.
An early Japanese variety of good flavor with small, tender, egg-shaped fruits about 5 in. long. Vigorous plants.
Long warm growing season required. Used for flavoring chili and dishes spiced with hot peppers.
A favorite of hummingbirds and bees. Flowers of varying shades of lavender may be added to salads.
The first artichoke bred to produce in one season.
24-26 in. green pods are tender to 18 in. Pink red seeds. Always a reliable, trouble-free variety excellent for the home garden.
Organic. Heirloom. Interior leaves are quite pretty: creamy yellow-green dappled with red. Succulent with a buttery flavor.
Southern Exposure Seed Exchange is a worker-owned cooperative that specializes in heirloom and open-pollinated seeds. Our mission is to ensure that people retain control of the food supply, that genetic resources are conserved, and that gardeners have the option of saving their own seeds. We are committed to genetic preservation. All of our seeds are either certified organic or produced ecologically by small growers who have opted to forgo the costly certification process. We encourage seed saving, and offer supplies and information to seed savers. We grow at least 40% of our own seed. This is one of the highest percentages in the mail order seed trade. We emphasize quality customer service and guarantee 100% satisfaction. We hope our seeds bring abundance to your gardens!
