Peach Sugar Rush Pepper
The Peach Sugar Rush pepper was selectively bred by Chris Fowler, who finally stabilized the variety in 2012, 8 years after he first started the process. He had noted that the rosy color was associated with higher sugar levels and a strong citrus taste.
He did succeed very well, as this pepper tastes very sweet with hints of apricot, peach and lemon before the spiciness comes in. Ranging from 50 000 to 100 000 on the Scoville scale, it ranks under Habanero peppers. Very productive and delicious (for hot pepper lovers!), it quickly became one of our favorites at the farm.
Do not be surprised, the peach color does take a while before showing up. It will come towards the end of the season, or you might even need to make it ripen after harvesting it. Nothing stops you from eating it before though!

Also known as the "Montreal Market Muskmelon" or "Montreal Nutmeg Melon". This mythical green flesh melon with a nutmeg flavor has almost disappeared.
The earliest records come from the Jesuits, who cultivated this variety in the Montreal Plain in 1684. According to the Potager d'Antan : "this melon went through many selections during the 17th Century, before being introduced under the name "Montreal Melon", in 1870. In the 1880s, it was listed as one of the best seller in New England by American seed company Burpee".
Very popular at the beginning of the 1900s and until the 1950s, it was largely commercialized and grown by three families : the Aubin, the Décarie and the Gorman. But lack of labour force, rises in wages and the spreading of the city triggered its decline. As highways paved the island, it slowly faded from our collective memory. When farms vanished from Montreal, it risked being obliterated. Until a journalist found its trace in a seed bank, in the United States.
This melon is a living proof of our seed and food diversity decline. Save your seeds and share them.
