SPECIALTY MIXES

A flamboyant chef and outrageous gardener specially designs these blends to offer you the most diverse culinary and visual opportunity available from our fields. All seed varieties are grown in isolation to assure seed purity. Then mixed as a dynamic kitchen recipe, inviting you to have exciting gourmet foods, flowers, and herbs for your table for the price of just one package of seed! Match with a package of what you know you like for everyday eating, such as orange carrots, in rows sided by side. Enhance your visual, culinary, and nutritive experience. Be lured into the garden, entice yourself or children to the dinner table, be tantalized by color, texture, and taste. Even select from your favorites to grow seed for next year's garden!

EXOTIC BUNCHING CARROTS

5 colors in one packet! ~ Scarlet Nantes is orange ~ Dragon, purple skinned ~ Nutri-red is red ~ St. Valerie, pink ~ Amsterdam Gold is yellow to yellow-orange. Makes it exciting to go to the garden, and eating fun. Entertains the child in all of us, and tantalizes our eyes, palates and salivary glands with color, which represents nutrition. For instance: red in our food is nurturing for the prostate gland, and can serve as a cancer preventative. More simply, the more diverse we eat, the more diverse the nutrition we can absorb.
