On the outside, with its pale white skin, this ball-shaped radish looks boring. But inside awaits a splash of pink-colored flesh, truly like a watermelon.
Crisp and sweet taste, milder than many radishes. It is better to peel the hard skin. Ideal for carpaccio, can be eaten raw, roasted or stewed. Great if you wish to cause a sensation or want the children to discover radishes !
This Chinese heirloom is of the daikon type.
Pkt : +150 seeds.
Old dwarf cultivar from Beauce, Quebec. Its green pods are covered with purple stripes. It can be eaten as green or dry beans. According to many, they're the best choice to make baked beans (fèves au lard). However, Boucher Family bean fans disagree. The solution? Mix 'em both!
Beauce territory was originally occupied by the Iroquoian Nation of the Saint-Lawrence. It is therefore a possibility that this bean comes from a variety that they were growing. With the arrival of the first Colonizers many trades happened, among which beans were handed to the newcomers. With this gift, they then continued selection over many years to create different varieties.
This variety, Thibodeau du comté Beauce, was found by Mr Marc Warsha. He was given the seeds by Mr Martin Roy from St-Zacharie, in Beauce. The cultivation of this bean had been carried for 4 generations, starting with the great-great-grandmother of Martin Roy, as far as we can trace back.
The name, Thibodeau du comté Beauce, was first listed in the Seed of Diversity catalogue in 2003.

Named after the town of Chioggia in the Venetian Lagoon, this beet can be eaten raw or cooked. Delicious sweet taste and a pleasure for the eyes, with its distinctive concentric red and white stripes. Will loose some of its color once cooked, but is perfect for carpaccio. Leaves and stems are edible too.
Developed in Italy before 1841, the Chioggia derives from another traditional variety, the Bassano beet, named after a town in the Veneto region. The Chioggia beet was introduced in the United States before 1865 and furthermore perfected by seed producers.
As popular as it is easy to grow. Italian Heirloom.
