I must say I've learned a lot about the different varieties of vegetables this summer. From "Burgundy Beans" to "Detroit Red Beets" my CSA shares have inspired me to do some research into common and not-so-common produce and their uses. My conclusion: either farmers have a weird sense of humor or they are buying their seeds in an alley behind the 7-11.
Check out Plant World Seeds for proof and tell me these are not some shady vegetables. Here are my favorites:
Black From Tula
Super Snow White
King of Mammoth
Early Summer Crookneck
Yugoslavian Finger Fruit
I'm thinking these could be good band names too.
