Ball Seed Vegetables At Our 2021 Customer Days
Are you visiting West Chicago next week? There’s still time to register for one of our three open days to see The Gardens at Bal. This week, we wrap up our blog showcase of new plants on display in our trial gardens with a closer look at our top-quality vegetables for your edibles program.
We have numerous new varieties for the upcoming sales season, including AAS award-winning Jalapeño Pepper Pot-a-peño, Pepper Better Belle IV, Tomato Bush Early Girl, and Tomato Bush Champion II. These new varieties have been bred and tested to give the most successful product possible.
The Jalapeno Pepper Pot-a-peño features early-fruiting and has a unique cascading habit that’s perfect for a hanging basket or premium container. It’s a great addition to any vegetable program and reaches new gardeners with its special benefits.
The Pepper Better Belle IV is a sweet bell pepper that yields plenty of shiny, firm and blocky fruit. It ripens early from green to red and the fruit has a crisp texture and sweet flavor with thick walls perfect for slicing, stuffing or baking. This variety also has fantastic disease resistance.
Tomato Bush Early Girl and Tomato Bush Champion II are both perfect for large patio containers and feature an abundant harvest of round slicer tomatoes. Bush Early Girl produces firm red fruits with excellent flavor, while Bush Champion II produces big, meaty fruits with a beautiful, bright red color and full flavor.
