Golden Beauty Chinese Cabbage

55 days. The best-tasting Chinese cabbage that we have tried, boasting astounding golden color! Golden Beauty cabbage is reminiscent of lettuce hearts for its buttery, super melt-in-your mouth texture. We can’t get enough of this ultra-refined super flavorful variety that is simply the best for stir fry, hot pots and soups. This nutritious type of cabbage has been cultivated in China for over 1000 years. It is considered a culinary staple and cultural symbol, featured in everything from poetry and literature to artwork and even song! Chinese cabbage was celebrated as a medicinal food by prominent naturalist of the Ming dynasty, Li Shizen. After receiving the superfood stamp of approval, Chinese cabbage exploded in popularity and has remained a beloved green since. Introduced over 100 years ago to the United States, this vegetable was received with much fanfare as a nutritious Chinese introduction. The golden yellow variety has increased nutritional benefits and it provides more than twice the potassium of standard broccoli and is replete with minerals and vitamins. The fiber-rich yellow heads are more than equal to whole milk in terms of calcium content and is more bioavailable than milk, meaning your body is able to more effectively use the calcium in chinese cabbage. In our tests the Golden Beauty variety contains about 40% more minerals than standard green varieties. This variety is beloved for its superior mild, sweet, flavor and brilliant lemon yellow color when grown in the right, cool conditions. This tender and tasty variety can be prepared raw or cooked with sublime results! This variety has green outer leaves, but peel them back to reveal the golden beauty!

Pippin's Golden Honey Pepper
Marina Di Chioggia Pumpkin

95 days. The heirloom sea pumpkin of Chioggia, a fishing village on the coast of Italy, south of Venice. The large turban-shaped fruit is deep blue-green. It is one of the most beautiful and unique of all squash. A perfect variety for market gardeners. The rich, sweet flesh is a deep yellow-orange and of good quality, delicious baked or in pies. The fruit weighs about 10 lbs each and is produced on vigorous vines. Originally from South America, this warty winter squash made its way back to Spain and found its popularity in Italy. This dark orange and sweet fleshed fruit was introduced to Venice in the late 1600s and quickly became a beloved addition to the culinary culture. The network of lagoons south of Venice has been inhabited since the 5th century. Originally the people there fished and hunted small game, harvested sea salt, grew fruit and eventually vegetables. The region became a major source of vegetables for the Venetians once the salt marshes were drained and cultivated. Winter squash became a key staple for the winter months and especially for the poor who could not afford or access meat as readily. The rich, dense Marina di Chioggia, storing for up to six months, filled this winter food gap, and its incredible depth of flavor quickly spread throughout Italy and the world. This beauty of a squash is still served on the canals of Venice, grilled with olive oil by the bargemen and served as a whole wedge. A sweet and savory delight, for sure! Its meaty and sweet texture has also made this pumpkin popular as a filling for ravioli and for making gnocchi.
