Tetragon is usually grown for its leaves, which can be added in salads or cooked. Thanks to its ability to withstand difficult climates, this plant grows readily in the wild in China, Reunion Island, and New Zealand. It is also fairly easy to grow in Quebec, but it will behave as an annual since it cannot tolerate frost.
Held up by a round stem, tetragon has a really unique look with its thick leaves and quadrangular fruits. Good source of vitamin B1, B2 and C; the New Zealand spinach is both delicious and nutritious!

Aged 90, aunt Alice (Marie-Alice Laflamme Gosselin) still grew her now famous cucumber. She chose the biggest and nicest ones, collected the seeds, let them soak in milk on Saint-Antoine's eve, and planted them in her garden in some rich and fertile soil. After Alice's death in 2005, the last seeds were given to a dedicated man who helped us discover this variety.
This cucumber is resistant to diseases and insects alike, and very productive. It is easily digested, but the skin is rarely eaten for it is lightly bitter. We prefer the smaller cucumber to the bigger fruits. The flesh is delicious and very fragrant, similar in taste to the English type cucumber.
Exceptional heirloom variety.
Package : 15 seeds. Not that many because extracting the seeds from this cucumber is very challenging, it only produces a few.
This wild rocket has deeply serrated leaves and a sharp flavor, spicier than traditional arugula. Perfect for those who love arugula salads and for gardeners who enjoy an impromptu snack on a warm summer day.
Hardy and self-seeding.
Package : 500 seeds.
Annual herb used as a vegetable and grown for its leaves. They can be eaten raw or cooked. Cut leaves before flowers appear. The floral stems can reach 1,50 meters tall.
