Razzle Dazzle Spinach
Razzle Dazzle is an early, fast growing, high yielding spinach. Razzle
Dazzle is ready to be cut in 30 days after germination in your garden.
Leave it to grow taller, but in the warm weather it will bolt early, so
keep you eye on it. This spinach like all other spinach varieties likes
cool growing conditions. Plant early in the spring as soon as the soil can
be worked. You can also plant Razzle Dazzle in the fall. Razzle Dazzle is
excellent cooked or as a spinach salad and has a sweet and mild taste. It
grows tall and erect; it will reach 20 inches tall when grown in good
conditions. Steaming spinach is the most efficient way to cook it, but
most people blanch it in a large pot of boiling water. Plant Razzle Dazzle
when you think of planting spring peas-the earlier the better.
Esmeralda is a superior butter head lettuce with a firm head and large frame and butt. The heads have good size and weight. It is resistant to bolting which means it will not get away from you because it is long-standing and slow to go
to seed. The heads are an attractive bright green colour with a soft texture and a nice sweet taste. Maturity is 53-55 days, 10 days earlier than
Columbia Hybrid Cabbage
The home garden market is looking for smaller head sizes, smaller plants that can be crowded in the garden, better garden holding ability, combined with excellent flavour and early maturity.
Columbia cabbage does all of this. The head size is about two to three pound range. Its plants will withstand crowding because they are smaller and more compact. When the heads are formed dense and solid, it holds and waits, and holds and waits until you’re ready to cut and use it. It will eventually split open, but it takes a long time. The heads are round, very solid, bluish green in colour, have a really
good cabbage flavour and mature in 73-75
days from transplanting. The Columbia cabbage is tolerant and resistant to tip burn
and fusarium yellows for a little crop assurance.
