Rich flavor. Rare variety having been rediscovered by bean collector John Withee, who got it from Mr. Taylor of Steep Falls, Maine, after 11 years of research. He had read the description in an encyclopedia dating back to the 1700s. In 1981, John Withee donated his collection of 1,186 beans to the Seed Savers Exchange (USA). This variety appeared in several eastern New England catalogs in the 1850s, including one from Montreal, dated 1899, which listed this variety as very popular.

Rocquencourt Butter Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris var. nana 'Beurre de Rocquencourt)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Golden yellow bean with long, thin pods. Very good productivity and stability. Originally from France and previously from Algeria. The more you pick, the more it produces, over a long period of time. Its advantage lies in the ability of its pods to remain tender for several days on the plant. So advantageous for traveling gardeners or market gardeners too busy to pick their beans every day. The seeds are elongated, deep black. One of the tastiest in our collection. Beans of this type were introduced to France around the 1840s under the name Haricot d'Alger, because they supposedly originated in Algeria. From this genetic pool of black-seed beans, the French developed other varieties including butters from Rocquencourt, a town near Versailles.

Avoid handling or removing weeds when the beans are wet to avoid the proliferation of diseases. With us, it is very resistant to diseases and very little watered, since it is mulched throughout the summer. When the seedlings have started to sprout, ensure that the plants do not lack water until the first true leaves appear.
Dutch Princess bean (Phaseolus vulgaris var. nana 'Dutch Princess')
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD

It has a name that seems old, and is not listed by seed saving organizations in the Canada or the United States. Limited quantities. VERY RARE. Anyone who can provide us with information on where it comes from would be appreciated as this is one of our best beans! Addendum In November 2016 we found a trace of a Duch Princesse bean in the "New-Zeland Journal of Crop and Horticultural Science /Experimental Agriculture" of March 1978. The origin of the bean named Duch Princess is believed to be Holland. He was also named by the seed company William Damn Seeds who would sell an improved variety from a Duch Princess bean. We find another trace of it in a research center in... Tanzania, in Arusha, (Centro Internacional de Agricultura Tropical (CIAT)) in 1972.

MAINTENANCE AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

Venus Teton Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Venus Teton')
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Italian red tomato. Original heart shape with a beautiful tip which, it seems, inspired its name. Very dense flesh, excellent for sauces and sandwiches. Its resistance to diseases and the abundance of its fruits compensate for its late production. I would recommend it for market gardeners, because it handles well (no pun intended) and keeps for a long time. One of our top three!

MAINTENANCE AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS
Gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions about 10 days before planting by taking them out during the day. Lay the plants horizontally, slightly arching the plant to bring the leaves out.
Perennial Onion (Allium cepa)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
The perennial onion is very practical in the garden. Low maintenance, it grows producing an onion tiller of about 10 or 12 onions the size of a leek. It is edible in its entirety, not just the leaves! It flowers very early in the garden, and you can separate the tiller with a shovel to transplant it to other places. It does not keep well indoors but overwinters outdoors well covered with dead leaves. Several varieties of perennial onions are available on the market, our lineage comes from Ferme Miracle.

Wait for autumn to consume.

MAINTENANCE AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS
Leave a foot with a few onions in the ground, so the following year you will have a small "grove" of onions.
