Vegetables

We rate the maturity of our vegetable varieties a little differently from most seed companies. Most ratings list the number of days to harvest but growing conditions in the far north are different because of the long days and cool soils making the traditional ratings are not accurate when gardening in the far north. What we've done is rate our varieties according to whether they will mature as first early, early, midseason or late in the far north and these ratings used throughout this guide. We've tested our varieties in cold soils, in cool nights and during long days. Our method of rating maturity gives you useful information for growing in the north that you won't find anywhere else.
