January 2014: New Seed Variety Issue
A new seed variety from American Takii



Hybrid Broccoli Paraiso

Good for bunching, crown cut and florets.  Matures 75 days after transplanting (95-98 days after direct sowing).  Plant has a good upright habit, consistently produces heads with good dome and fine, dark green beads.  Outstanding performance in high density cultivation, best performance when planted in coastal California for spring to summer harvesting.  Excellent post-harvest shelf-life.




Hybrid Collard Hi-Crop

A medium-early collard, Hi-Crop is very versatile and vigorous, tolerating both heat and cold allowing for a long growing season and wide adaptability.  Easy to grow, it produces a large crop of very uniform, broad, deep green, semi-savoy leaves.  Hi-Crop’s leaves are tender and mild flavored.  Plants are medium in size and height.




Hybrid Melon Valley Dew

Valley Dew is a main season, green flesh Honeydew melon with great uniformity. Round, slightly oval with a small seed cavity and firm, sweet, green flesh, Valley Dew is resistant to Fusarium race 0 & 2.  Its strong vine protects the fruit from sunburn and extends fruit set.




Hybrid Onion Centerstone

Featuring a high percentage of single centers, Centerstone is a long day, early to mid-season, yellow Spanish-type cross and produces excellent bulb size for high yields.  It’s slow bolting and best for fresh and export markets and stores well under favorable conditions.




Hybrid Turnip Tokyo Cross

Very smooth, pure white skin and a perfect globe shape are among Tokyo Cross’s desireable characteristics.  Very early maturing (35 to 60 days after sowing), it can be harvested at a very early stage — as small as 2.5 inches (6 cm) in diameter.  With very late pithiness, Tokyo Cross can also be harvested at a later stage with bulbs reaching up to 6 inches (15 cm) in diameter.  It also has a late bolting habit.
